Gypsy, Roma and Traveller families often comprise three or four generations living together or close by. Traditions and culture, skills and trades, music and story, financial and emotional support transfer between them. Schools that succeed in including Gypsy, Roma and Traveller pupils in one generation continue to work well with succeeding generations of the extended family.
Our conference will give participants an opportunity to share and discuss how intergenerational life works for them, how it is experienced by different generations and the challenges posed by contemporary society.
Oxford Brookes is the home of the RIBA studio which is a practice-based route to qualification as an Architect. Its programme director is ACERT member Maria Faraone, and we plan to incorporate content from course participants into the day.
We hope the day will be advertised around all the Oxford colleges, so students with Gypsy, Roma and Traveller heritages, and those who want to support our campaign for equal rights can meet us and learn more about what ACERT does.
We’re also planning a workshop for young activists on the previous day organised by our chair Lisa Smith. Contact her for more details.
Further details will be mailed out shortly.
