The exhibition, to be presented in Romanian Cultural Centre in London, aims to highlight both anti-Roma prejudice and the ordinariness of Roma people’s reality and activism, hoping to bring a new dimension to the debate surrounding the Roma from Eastern Europe.

The exhibition is open from 19 June to 6 July 2014.
