My Grandfather’s Treasure Program for the Bases of Roma – Non-Roma Intercultural Path and Attractions
Summary of project results
The Association established a model programme in seven towns of Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg County with Hodász as centre. The goal was to implement a unique programme by exploring and popularizing the values of the local Roma and non-Roma culture and landscape in Nyírség. Roma and non-Roma young people participated in the value-rescue work who collected the ethnographic and landscape values of their town with their mentors. They met each other in the Hodász Creative House each month. Also, the field trips forged the local youth. The media workshop presented the programme in Hodász and on road-shows promoting web radios in 10 towns. The participants of „Pántlika” (ribbon) Folk Playhouse and Art Therapy Workshop created lasting products with innovative methods and co-operative work, which were showed on travelling exhibitions at the programme sites.The 60-hour Roma Folk Playhouse instructor training has been elaborated and accredited. Museum pedagogy sessions and guided tours brought the Roma folk culture closer to the visitors. In the workshops, mutual exchange of experience, transfer of knowledge and opportunity to meet recognized experts in the topic was constantly provided for the professional team. During the symposium, the colleagues of museums and exhibitions housing Roma collections in different towns of Hungary could meet. The popularization of village tourism, of the local ethnographic and landscape values took a start in the seven towns of Nyírség involved in the programme, and the "Grandfather's Treasure Programme" was a very strong link.
