Gypsies, Roma and Travellers of Irish Heritage have a combined migration history of over a millennium with traditions of nomadism forming the foundations of their cultures. Fiercely proud of their heritage, these communities ensure that the legacy of their culture is passed on to future generations through art, music and storytelling.
Wherever the Road Takes Me is an exhibition which offers young people from Gypsy, Roma and Traveller of Irish Heritage communities a voice to challenge stereotypes and share expressions of their identities.
The exhibition features a short film created by Gypsy Traveller young people and illustrated short stories by Roma children. Through interviews and photographs, the project presents personal insight into what is culturally important to Gypsy, Roma and Traveller young people.
Suitable for all ages
Please note the film being shown in the exhibition contains some sensitive language that some visitors may find offensive. The young people who created the film were very keen to include this to demonstrate their experiences.
Please check museum opening times.
