The aim of the project is to tear down the prejudice concerning the Roma people in our community – Ústí nad Orlicí town.
To do so, we are using 5 activities.
1/ Evidence is more than talks – The Roma people will build a Neighbour’s corner in the remoted area they live in. A place of meeting for adults and kids. By realizing this, they will PROVE to the community (and to themselves) how meaningful is their work.
2/ Interactive talks on high schools. 10 lectures performed by white and Roma lectors using non-formal methods and experience based learning to help students admit their unconcious prejudices.
3/ Stand at the Integration day. The Roma citizens will present their lifestories during the Integration day on the townsquare – kids from teh club, Roma police assistants, and other through posters. It is an activity that allows a direct meeting with local Roma people and present their contrib to the community.
4/ Autograph session of the local Roma writer for both Romany and white readers in the library.
5/ Roma ecumenical church service, with Romany worship. To open church communities to the Roma people and vice versa.
Activity #1 is main. Activities were suggested by the Roma.
