EVENT: LGBTIQ Gypsy, Roma & Traveller Conference

Date: Thursday 4 July 2019

Time: 18.00 - 20.00

Location: Neuadd, Senedd

Description: The Romani Cultural and Arts Company (RCAC) is proud to invite you to the LGBTIQ Gypsy, Roma and Traveller (GRT) Conference. The event will feature Dr Daniel Baker (England) and Christine Lee (Wales) plus guests including Robert Rustem (Council of Europe) William Bila (France/US) and Vera Kurtic (Serbia). This varied range of speakers with their diverse areas of expertise will open up debate regarding LGBTIQ issues as they relate to GRT individuals and communities. This event is one of many that RCAC is currently co-ordinating. We are excited to be giving a ‘minority within a minority’ a platform and a voice. This LGBTIQ GRT conference presents a unique opportunity to participate in discussion with an international panel of inspiring speakers. Dr Daniel Baker, Romani artist, curator and academic says: “Discussions regarding the significance of intersecting identities are more important than ever. By recognising commonalities across difference through shared experience and knowledge we move closer toward a more caring society.” Isaac Blake; Director of the Romani Cultural & Arts Company says: “An open, tolerant society cannot pick and choose which groups should merit tolerance and understanding. Every individual living on our beautiful planet deserves to be judged on their own words and actions; not on their race, nationality, religion, sexuality or family background. Let’s stand together and be proud of the amazing diversity that humanity encompasses.”

Open to the public: The event will take place outside our normal opening hours therefore attendance will be by invitation only
