AndroMedia - In Media

The Romani culture and arts are a part of the national, European and world cultural and artistic space, and it keeps growing and developing constantly. There is a new generation of young educated artists and performers active in the area of music, dance, new media, arts, alternative arts, theatre and literature. Unfortunately, there is a substantial lack of interest and knowledge of critics who would be able to approach critically to Romani culture and arts.

 

 

The AndroMedia (in Czech “In Media”) project contributes to dealing with this problem and supports to development of artistic critical reviewing through interdisciplinary activities including several workshops, seminars, discussions with audience and experts, in both direct and online communication.

 

Project activities will help develop participants’ capacities in culture as they improve competencies of future critics – students of journalism and ethnomusicology, and Romani writers. The project also implements Audience Development Strategies and launches the Online Discussion Forum which will contribute to social dialogue.

 

The project will increase awareness on critical reviewing of Romani literature, music, theatre, arts and alternative arts through organized discussions with artists/performers, critics and audience and expert workshops for future critics carried out in partnership with the Ara Art, NGO, the Faculty of Humanities of the Charles University and Sofiya Zahova from University of Iceland.

 

We believe that completion of this project will significantly improve the situation in critical reviewing of Romani culture and arts and contribute to the increased and boosted competences of existing and future critics. Objective and critical approach of experts and audience will also support quality and professionalism of Romani artistic production.
