Preserving Romanes in Adult Education

Project description

Due to the century lasting social and cultural stigmatization and discrimination of Roma and their language, the use of Romanes as literature and stage language was prevented. This lead to the fact that Romanes could never really be anchored in education.

In adult education it plays almost no role at all. With consideration of the fact that the participation of Roma in education after the obligatory school decreases relevantly, it gets clear that adult education is for many Roma older than 18 years the only possibility to educated themselves further, to balance education deficits and – even if late – to participate in lifelong learning.

Our project aims therefore at preserving Romanes as relevant part of the cultural identity of Roma and to utilise it for concrete offers of adult education.
