oje - I see all our photos are present on the home-site! It is to much romany dance school, I think! ;-) So I will cancel any, when I come back from Poland on tuesday! Sorry, amale!

Oh, Els - ja, das sind auch wirklich schöne Fotos! Aber es sind alles Tanzfotos, die sich so breit machen! ;-) Das ist mir peinlich. Soll denn nicht von allen etwas präsent sein? Ich sortiere mal ein wenig aus, wenn ich zurückkehre. Mit besten Grüßen, Katjusha

Chère Els,

Merci pour votre accueil.

Je suis tout à fait prêt à cette idée de participer à un groupe qui rassemblerait des écrivains et poètes roms. Par avance, ce sera une grande joie de contribuer à ce projet. Nombre de mes textes sont actuellement rassemblés dans deux recueils de poèmes, dont le premier préfacé par mon ami Jean-Marie Kerwich. Il s'agit de "Mes saisons du bonheur chez les gens du voyage" et "Frères!". Ce sont mes lettres d'amour aux communautés du peuple rom et une réflexion sur notre aptitude à accepter l'autre dans sa différence. Pour ce qui concerne ma production picturale, une grande partie de celle-ci vient de la même inspiration. Beaucoup d'œuvres parlent de mes frères, gitans, tsiganes, manouches, yenishes...et d'une sombre part de leur histoire, le Samudaripen, auquel j'ai consacré une suite de tableaux. Mon site professionnel est actuellement en reconstruction. Vous aurez accès à mes images dès qu'il sera à nouveau opérationnel.

Bien cordialement,

Félix

Dear Els

Thank you very much for welcoming me and I am glad to be part of Khetanes, and part of my famiya again.

I was born on a gypsy campsite in Belvedere Marshes, in England in a birthing tent. My mother's father's family were Harris and her mother's, my Bibi's were Holyhead. My father was Spanish although he fought in the Spanish Civil War and I only just remember him when he came to visit. He had like us darker skin than the gadge and I remember him mooning around her when he came to visit!

I still remember what my Nan taught, but I have hidden most of my life my true Romany side. I did write poetry much of my life and have painted more recently now. In my last exhibition a part of it included a 'Romany Room'.

Much of what I have painted, as a self-taught artist has been to do with water and boats, of fighting (having experienced two wars, one as a child in London and in Korea), and dreams which take me to another place, religion and sometimes gypsy campsites. I am putting a small video my friend Rose took of me painting a fantasy in 2009.

I have enjoyed seeing all the poetry, artwork and films here done by Roma and I wish I could remember my Romanes that I knew as a child (as well as Welsh gaelic and Spanish) but was not allowed to speak it at school. I hope this will change, but I did like learning history and literature as well.

Dear Michael,

Thank you very much for your kind-hearted letter! And sorry for the delay in answering. We had something to celebrate in the family and I am also supporting my son with an important issue. The Khetanes work comes on top, since we are reorganising the site, as you know. We want to establish some core groups, also one about visual art and painting. I really hope you will join that one. If you want to help with the coordination, you are welcome also. We try to document all major achievements in arts and science. That will be like a visitor's card. The other activities will focus on anti-Defamation and Roma rights. We will also do our best to make it easier to find information here on a certain topic: e.g. painting or cinema or music...

Please, comment back if you want to join the (still to be established) painting group, or send an e-mail to Artists_Initiative@ziggo.nl

Very best wishes,

Els

Danke Els für die Erstellung meines neuen Profils. Ich hatte mich zur Eröffnung Ihrer Plattform bereits registriert, aber in der Tat zwischenzeitlich das PW wieder vergessen. Gern würde ich Bratislav einladen, nur hat er zur Zeit keinen Emailaccount und ist nur telefonisch zu erreichen. Wir informieren ihn aber täglich über den Verlauf der Petition. Mit vielen guten Grüßen aus Berlin und vielen Dank für Ihre Initiative! Lith Bahlmann

Yes, it would be great to get in touch with others from Bulgaria. Our little NGO if often so busy with our internal problems of the neighbourhood in Vladislavovo that we don't get to meet others doing similar work, which is very sad!
I think i am going to make up for all the time lost, so people can see what we are doing. I could just post some events we had in the past, don't you think that might be a good idea?

Hi Els, I am very  pleased  that I am the 1000th member! And thank you for your  kind  words. I will be soon in Austria and  start to work with Zuzana  on her next documentary about the wall, that are  being erected by local governments to "save normals citizens" from the Roma. There are already 13 walls... I will compose the  music and we will try to include local musicians into this project - it will be  not  only a  documentary, but a  multi media  project - supposed we will get the finances together. Fingers crossed...

Bonjour Els et merci pour l'accueil!

Je ne sais pas encore dans quelle mesure je peux apporter ma contribution, mais je trouve l initiative excellente .

je ne suis pas artiste mais je défends l'idée du droit à l expression manuelle pour tous.

Créer , c'est agir sur le monde et prendre en main son destin.

Quand on devient acteur on ouvre aussi son esprit aux autres cultures, on peut partager des savoir faire.

et faire entendre sa voix , par l intermédiaire de ses mains, pour dire non à l'intolérance , pour dire oui à la richesse multiethnique.

non à la Romaphobia , non à toutes les formes d'oppression .

Avec des couleurs, du fer, de la pierre, des sons, des signes, du bois , peu importe la matière, peu importe la manière

avec le dénominateur commun qui n a pas de frontière:

Il cuore.

Bonsoir, Isabelle!

Grand merci pour vos mots si sympathiques! La plupart des gens au site de Khetanes sont artistes, mais certainement pas tous. Regardez le bouton "Who is Who". Et la créativité ne sert pas seulement aux arts. Elle nous aide aussi de nous imaginer le sort, les pensées et les émotions des autres. Je suis sûre que vous pourrez contribuer fortément dans le futur.

Bientôt je serai en vacances, mais je serai de retour au début de septembre. Bon été aussi pour vous, Isabelle. Et encore une petite prière: n'oubliez pas de mettre une photo (portret ou logo) dans votre profil.

Salutations cordiales,

Els
