Gypsy, Roma and Traveller History Month 2023

Last updated by Stephanie.Rosser@essex.gov.uk on Tuesday, June 20, 2023

 

June is Gypsy, Roma and Traveller History Month. This year the theme is “Weaving Journeys: A celebration of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller lives, histories and cultures”.

 

The theme will focus on patterns of travel, spanning across the past, and leading to the future. It will ask and feature where Romany Gypsy, Roma, Irish Traveller and other nomadic communities have travelled before, and where people would like to travel next, as a celebration of cultures and traditions.

 

Through celebration, education and raising awareness, Gypsy, Roma and Traveller History Month helps to tackle prejudice, challenge myths and to amplify the voices of Gypsies, Roma and Travellers in wider society.
