The Social-Cultural Foundation of Roma People “Ion Cioaba” will organize the first edition of the International Festival “ROMAII POESIA” , a large international cultural manifestation, between the 30th of September and the 2nd of October 2016.

Thus we will enjoy the presence of many poets, musicians and dancers artists from Romania and abroad, like:

Amfitrion poetul Mrcea Dinescu,

Costel Busuioc Romania, Santino Spinelli (Italia poet sand  musician , Katjusha Kozubek dansatoare si poeta Germania, Hedina Tahirović Sijerčić, poetă şi jurnalistă,  Bosnia şi Herţegovina,, Edward Debicky,Polonia ,Valdemar Kalin poet Anglia ,Nicolas Ramanush poet si musician Brazilia  si t.b.c.


It will be a special artistic moment with Romaii poetry dance and music recital, for a multi ethnic public, in Piaţa Mică, Sibiu. The poets' meeting will offer an opportunity for the interested public to find out about the Roma minority in România and in the world.

This event will have a national and international echo, being presented and spread in each country by the invited participants. We hope that the event which is now at the first edition will have an echo and be continued in other countries, too.

The international participation of Roma origin poets assures a promotion of the inter-cultural dialogue. It is important to create links of mutual knowledge, in order to make the majority population aware or Roma culture, customs and traditions. Offering a background which facilitates this knowledge is a good way of fighting against discrimination, one of the main problems of Roma minority.

Until now we have the partnership of Sibiu city-hall and the support of the National Agency for Roma People, the Romani’ Cultural Centre.

As we hope to touch a very large public (about 5000 persons) this cultural event will have an international broadcasting, through the participation of the foreigner artists, very well known in their countries.

The guests’ arrival is planned to be in Sibiu, on the 30th of September 2016.

The first event of the project will take place on the 1st of October 2016, in “Piața Mică”. The artists will be there at 15.30, in different points of the old city. Each of them will realize a short performance, attracting the present public after him, so that both all the artists and the public would meet on the stage in Piata Mica.

The artists will benefit of specific Romaii traditional properties (carriage, horses, costumes specific Romani and to each country they come from, flowers, balloons) and will be joined by the musicians and Romani ballet dancers. Starting with five o’ click (17.00) the public is expected to a great, original performance, with Romaii poetry, dance and music. It will last up to 21.00.

On Sunday, the guests will participate in a tour around Sibiu and meet the local community.

The departure is planned on the 3rd of October 2016.

Date and estimated period of the event:0 1 – 02 October 2016
