Roma festival Khamoro
From 29.5 to 31. 5. 2015 children visited Prague Khamoro festival, which regularly offers a unique
concert of gypsy bands and exhibition of culture from around the world, film screenings, dance
workshops, seminars and conferences.
This year, this event was also attended by children from the educational team, children and youth from
3 centers for children and youths Hrušov, Liščina, Zárubek, from the kids club in Horni Sucha, family
of Natalka Siváková who was burnt during an arson attack in Vitkov.
Most kids have never even to Prague on a similar festival so for them it was a great experience to get
to know the history of Prague, new experience, friends, inspiration, support, and they could be proud
of their Roma identity and culture. Since it was an adventure, but a costly trip, participants from
among our clients were selected on the basis of merit (good marks in school, regular attendance at the
centers Hrušov Liščina, Zárubek, for their help in organizing events and camps, decorating
neighborhood of the centers, representation at public events - singing, dance performances, visiting
home for the elderly, etc.). Prague drove the children and young people from excluded localities from
locations in Silesian Ostrava
After arriving by train to Prague children participated in the parade in costumes of Roma within
Khamoro. The procession led from Wenceslas Square to Old Town. The children visited Minister of
culture Daniel Herman in Nostitz Palace in the Lesser Town, which houses the Ministry of Culture.
Afterwards the children walked in our beautiful capital and examined the famous landmarks. In the
evening they visited a concert of traditional Roma music. All inspirational Roma personalities who
participated, served also as positive role models for children in the future.
On Saturday, the children went for a trip to the famous zoo in Prague-Troja, where they saw animals
from different corners of the planet. In the Evening they visited the gala concert, where many famous
and talented Romany artists, musicians performed. On Sunday children saw other beautiful places in
Prague from the Vltava River during an hour's steam boat ride. After lunch, the children full of
impressions and experiences left by train for Ostrava.
The event could be realized thanks to financial support from the city of Ostrava, the Ministry of
Culture, the Government Office, a grant from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA
