Together with experts from the Anne Frank House, the National Library of Serbia, local educators and librarians, and other stakeholders in Serbia and the region, Terraforming is engaged on a new project on the Holocaust and Human Rights education.
One of the goals of the cooperation between Terraforming and EZS on the Balkans is to produce and implement pedagogic programs for local public sector/civil service employees about human rights and tolerance. One of the steps towards realization of this idea is this expert-exchange visit to Sweden.
Roma actors made “surprise performances” in the building of the University of Novi Sad, at the main square of Novi Sad, in the fields at the outskirts of the village of Sase…
Using collected recycled materials, Nadja, Malou and Mattias “glimpsed” the old Roma participants, creating specially designed costumes and props, transforming the old Roma in to their dream-professions.
This container might have been a “neonatal intensive care unit” (baby incubator), or it might have been a plastic holder used for researching some dangerous bacteria – it depends how we want to see it: do we want to treat Jeans Roma stories with special care, as something fragile, gentle, or as something contagious and dangerous?
Especially for the Fortune Tellers Future project, Captain Sorrow & Primitive Dance recorded a music piece “Roma Dreams” inspired by the destiny of the Roma in Europe, made on digital and analog music instruments and sounds of railway stations and subway trains announcements from around Europe. Misko also made a set of pictures “Roma Dreams”.
It is a 18 minutes long piece involving dreamy electronic soundscapes, piano, theremin, moog synthesizers, loops, and sounds of the subway and railway stations from England, Sweden, Russia and Ukraine. It’s about eternal travelers, wandering souls without home and about belonging nowhere and everywhere. Read more and listen to the music…
The Institute for Historical Justice and Reconciliation from The Hague and Terraforming joined forces to develop a new international project involving the Roma narratives. The preparations are moving forward, and we are confident that we will soon be able to announce the launch of the project.
