ERIAC is partner in a consortium with Asociación Nacional Presencia Gitana (Spain), EPEKA (Slovenia), Associazione Thèm Romano (Italy), funded by the Creative Europe Programme (CREA) of the European Commission. The project duration is 24 months, between January 2023 and December 2024.
The ROMHERIATGE project aspires to establish itineraries of Roma Cultural Heritage in Spain, Italy and Slovenia, and certificate them as routes of The Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe.

The Roma cultural heritage itineraries will give visibility to the most significant Romani cultural manifestations, and will link neighborhoods, sites, museums and documentation, research, cultural and educational centers, which will promote the knowledge and recognition of the Romani cultural heritage: a culture that is part of the European and universal common heritage.
The consortium is composed by the Project leader (Asociación Nacional Presencia Gitana from Spain) and 3 project partners: ERIAC (European Roma Institute of Arts and Culture), EPEKA (Slovenia) and Associazione Thèm Romano (Italy), as well as associate partners such as Instituto Cervantes (Spain).
