In 2017, representatives of the Norwegian Roma minority began a partnership with the Kirkens Bymisjon Foundation (The Church City Mission) and together they founded the Romano Kher organization. The combination of the two words they chose for their name means "Roma House" in Romani. Romano Kher, as a centre of Roma culture and traditions, has been in existence since 2018 and its representatives will share their experience with colleagues from the Czech Republic. In Telč, they will participate in music and art workshops and contribute their views on Roma culture and its presentation.
The Museum of Romani Culture was founded in 1991 on the initiative of Romani intellectuals as a non-governmental, non-profit organization. In the European context, it is a unique institution that globally documents the culture of Roma and Sinti, including many different Roma sub-ethnic groups and communities.
The Museum of Romani Culture is a renowned organisation specialising in various aspects of Romani identity, as well as in education and popularisation of minorities and the socially and culturally excluded. In this respect, it appropriately complements the activities of Masaryk University, which, especially in its third, i.e. social, role as a university, also focuses on these topics. Contemporary society views universities as representatives of values and subjects that cultivate public debate, support active citizenship, combat racism and prejudice, and strengthen activities leading to social and cultural dialogue.
Within the project, the partnership with the Museum of Romani Culture will be implemented through its involvement in a series of educational and cultural events, for which it will provide the content and present various dimensions of Romani culture.
