“Ballybane Library Exhibition- “Roma: One People-Many Lives”

“Ballybane Library is hosting an exhibition entitled “Roma: One People-Many Lives” from January 6th to January 30th. 
The exhibition may be viewed during library opening hours, Tuesday to Saturday 11am to 1pm and 2pm to 5pm.

Laurence Bond of the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission said “ This exhibition creates a real opportunity to showcase positive images of Roma people living in Ireland. The reality for many Roma people living in Ireland is that they are marginalized and experience prejudice and stigma as well as barriers to accessing employment and services. Many also experience poverty and social deprivation. This exhibition provides an important space for Roma people to tell their story about living, working and studying in Ireland, where they have made their home, with hopes and dreams for themselves and their families like everyone else.”
