The Roma Community Centre offers presentations to schools and organizations on the origins, history, culture and language of the Roma people.
Our mandate is to combat stereotypes regarding the mythological "Gypsy" by presenting the reality of the Roma people to Canadian children and young people.
We address the situation of systemic discrimination and persecution in former Soviet-Bloc countries that forces many Roma families to seek Convention-refugee status in Canada.
We address issues facing recent arrivals as they attempt to integrate into Canadian society.
We can work with your school or organization to jointly create a program that fits your specific needs.
Our presentations can include videos about the Roma people, such as:
Refugees From Democracy
– a CBC documentary about Roma in the Czech Republic
The Gypsies of Svinia
– an NFB production about Roma in Slovakia
– the musical journey of the Roma from India to Europe
Other resources dealing with the history and culture of the Roma and the Roma Holocaust during WWII
to discuss your presentation needs.
