Romani Arts, dedicated to making the visual and literary arts by Roma more visible. That visibility will lead to a better understanding of Romani culture and history as diverse and vibrant. The tight interconnection between the visual and literary arts and language also spurred the idea to include information on Romany, the language of the Roma people. The original inspiration for creating this website was the exhibit of Ceija Stojka’s artwork that traveled to three sites in the United States in 2009. Ceija Stojka is an Austrian Romani artist, writer, singer, performer, educator, and advocate for Romani rights.
