When: Monday 24th October from 12.30pm – 5pm 

Where: The Riverfront, Kingsway, Newport, NP20 1HG 

FREE ADMISSION: Places are free but please try to book in advance as capacity in our studio theatre is limited

 The Romani Cultural & Arts Company (RCAC) is pleased to announce the launch of a new report titled Sites of Inclusion: Gypsy, Roma and Traveller Participation in the Arts Sector of Wales, which comprises new research conducted by The Romani Cultural & Arts Company and commissioned by the Arts Council of Wales. This new study offers insight into the level of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller participation and inclusion within the Arts Sector of Wales with the aim of optimising opportunities for engagement with Gypsy, Roma and Traveller audiences, artists and arts professionals. This research also aims to support The Welsh Government’s goal to achieve an Anti-Racist Wales by 2030 through their Race Equality Action Plan.  

 This exciting conference will feature speakers and academics from Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities and follows in the footsteps of The Romani Cultural & Arts Company’s ground-breaking community engagement work to date. The Sites of Inclusion report expands the work of the Romani Cultural & Arts Company by finding new ways to engage Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities with the wider public in ongoing dialogue about the ways in which art continues to inform our lives today.

We anticipate that this exciting half-day symposium will generate great interest so please book your place early by register on Newport Live
