Romani Lives. Lungo Drom

Romani Lives. Lungo Drom

Romani Lives. Lungo drom is an exhibition dealing with the least well-known gypsy reality of today, providing a modern perspective of this people and its way of life in a show that combines historical and contemporary photography, videos, interactive elements, documents, objects and cutting-edge technology.

Gypsies (or Roms, as they call themselves in their language, the Romani Calo) are the most important minority in Europe but also one of the least well-known by the majority of society. Their old nomadic way of life, which they have retained over the centuries, has forced them to focus on their own community, sometimes in a rather hermetic manner; an attitude that has contributed to the rejection they have habitually suffered in the different societies where they have lived. These factors have resulted in a great lack of knowledge of their reality, which has led to a profound cultural rift with a people that has been present on our continent for more than five hundred years. Mutual knowledge will lead to a better coexistence in the future with the only existing pan-European minority.

On the occasion of this exhibition, seminars and conferences will be organised as well as complementary theatre, film and music activities. 

The exhibition Romani Lives. Lungo drom has been selected for the European Union’s Culture Programme 2007-2013 and, after its presentation in Granada, it will visit Hungary, Portugal and Austria.

“Vidas Gitanas. Lungo drom”has been selected by the Culture Programme  2007-2013 of the European Union.
