Tue 6 June 2017, 10:00 – 13:00 BST
The Equality Office is delighted to be hosting a morning with Richard O'Neill, a master story teller, raised in the nomadic tradition by a family who travelled all over the country. Having learned his story telling from the very best traditional Romany and North Country storytellers, Richard blends the old and new producing and telling unique, exciting and original stories for adults and children of all ages.
In an entertaining and informative talk, he will share his personal experiences, explore the use of language, challenge some of the common myths and consider how educational establishments can be inclusive and supportive of the travelling community.
Gypsy Roma Traveller History Month (GRTHM) was established in 2001 and takes place annually in June to celebrate the richness that Gypsy, Roma and Travellers communities bring to our everyday lives here in the UK through their many and varied academic and artistic achievements. Also the contributions they have made to British Society.
