Exciting FREE opportunity to participate in a badge competition

The Romani Cultural & Arts Company is once again co-ordinating the Gypsy, Roma & Traveller (GRT) History Month 2015.

Wales is a beacon of excellence in the promotion of equality of opportunity for all and for inclusive practices across services. Join them in June 2015 for a celebration of this and more.

Throughout Wales, there will be a variety of events taking place to celebrate the rich culture and heritage of Gypsy, Roma & Traveller communities. There will be exhibitions, performances and workshops accessible to all sectors of the community, with some key events taking place in North & South Wales.

Schools now have the opportunity to participate in the ‘Design-a-Badge’ competition, which is open to all Primary schools in Wales and culminates in a Gala event on Wednesday 24th June 2015 at St David’s Hall in Cardiff.

The competition supports the National Literacy & Numeracy Framework and is open to all children with two entry categories available: Key Stage 1 entries and Key Stage 2 entries. This is the perfect way to celebrate big themes such as diversity and equality as well as an opportunity to explore history and culture in an exciting way. Be inclusive, be included, get involved!

All participating schools will receive a thank you letter and certificate of participation. Winning designs will be produced as a set of badges for distribution by the Romani Cultural and Arts Company throughout 2015. Prizes for winners will be presented on Wednesday 24th June 2015, in Cardiff by Dr Daniel Baker and Isaac Blake.
