Thanks to Ciuin Ferrin, here’s a head’s up for a wonderful potential to represent Rroma.
Currently, the University of Iowa Roma collection is heavy on anthropology and light on works of Romany and non-Romany. Khetanes member Ciuin Ferrin has been asked to talk to their library staff soon about expanding their Rroma collection. Not only could this strengthen the Rromani section, it could lead to a library exhibit of Romany writing and art.
To prepare, Ciuin is making a list of works that could be used in a potential gallery. So many of you have pieces that need to be on her list, so please email her here (on Khetanes site) with your list and pertinent information. ALSO, please share with family and friends.
Budget and timeline have yet to be determined. In the meantime, please share the good news, brain-storm your dream list AND send your list and well wishes to Ciuin.
Thank you for being a Khetanes member and doing your art to help stop expressions of hate.
I have 33 books of interest. I will need Ciuin Ferrin's Email address to correspond with Ciuin in private, NOT on Khetane's site. My personal Email is : firstname.lastname@example.org Allow Ciuin to email me first and we shall proceed from there. Ja Devlessa, Rom Harold
Great and very interesting offer! I will pass you her address and pas her yours!
Dear One and All,
Some of the conversation has been removed as it did not adhere to V.A.P. guidelines of respect.
It is crucial that we do our best to follow V.A.P. guidelines to ensure we do our part to end hate.
Practice giving benefit of the doubt: ask members how you can help instead of lashing out.
I am updating the guidelines for clarity. Thank you for consideration and cooperation.
Khetanes is for people from all fields committed to stopping all expressions of hate, not just academics and/or financially endowed. V.A.P. is an abbreviation for Visual Arts and Painting group. V.A.P group guidelines are found in the section on V.A.P. page titled INFORMATION. Part of group co-coordinators' responsibilities is to moderate, like deleting disrespectful comments not adhering to our mission of stopping all expressions of hate in order to maintain safety and security of individuals and group. For those that have an issue and constructive criticism, please private message group co-coordinator rather than in this public forum in order to maintain the dignity of all. Thank you for your consideration.
