Our Proud Roma film is set to be featured in the Misleór Festival of Nomadic Cultures, an annual festival organized by the Galway Traveller Movement in Ireland. Misleór, which means ‘wanderer’ in the Irish Traveller language (locally known as Gammon language), celebrates and connects nomadic peoples from around the world. In their 4th year of the festival, they will explore nomadic identity through the lens of creativity and cultural action for change.
Misleór festival aims to spark meaningful dialogue about cultural rights, challenging the prejudice and discrimination often experienced by these communities. It will take place between 29 September – 1 October 2022, celebrating the diversity within nomadic communities with a vibrant programme of music, theatre, film, poetry, and visual art.
