Event description

Description

The Roma are the biggest ethnic minority in Europe whose history and culture are
an inseparable part of European and national cultural landscapes. Yet, Roma cultural heritage
is rarely acknowledged and included in the canon of collective European narrative.

The European Roma Institute for Arts and Culture (ERIAC) was launched on June 8th 2017 and
is located in Berlin. It aims to show the Roma cultural heritage for what it really is – a collective,
diverse and beautiful part of Europe’s cultural legacy, and a patrimony of national cultures
and histories, which needs to be protected and cherished.

ERIAC invites participants of the European Cultural Heritage Summit 2018 to a discussion
about the importance of Roma arts and culture as part of the European cultural heritage.
The event will provide an opportunity to discuss the current status quo with regards to
Roma cultural heritage recognition, as well as point to opportunities and novelties in the
contemporary Roma arts and culture scene in Europe.



Program:
- Introductory lecture “ERIAC’s role in preserving and promoting Roma cultural
heritage” by Timea Junghaus, art historian and Executive Director of the European
Roma Institute for Arts and Culture (ERIAC)
- Guided curatorial tour through the current exhibition in the ERIAC Art Space “The
Roma Spring: Art as Resistance” by dr. Anna Mirga-Kruszelnicka
- An open discussion with the participants/ questions and answers
