The Gypsies – A Workshop for Schools

Who are the Gypsies and who are the Roma? Where do they live and where do they come from? Do they have their own language or religion?

This interactive 60 minute workshop will look at these and other questions relating to the identity and culture of the Gypsies/ Roma, whilst exploring some of the ‘myths and truths’ surrounding their identity, through Storytelling, Music, Drama, Games and Language

Facilitated by Three’s A Crowd, the Gypsy/ Roma/ Traveler CC Service and the member of a Gypsy family

Suitable for Key Stages 2 and 3
