Gypsy Maker 5

The Romani Cultural & Arts Company (RCAC) is excited to announce an afternoon of Dance Talks in association with Ballet Cymru to mark the installation of the RCAC’s Gypsy Maker 5 exhibition at The Riverfront in Newport.

This exciting installation of specially commissioned works from the artists Imogen Bright Moon, Corrina Eastwood and Rosamaria Kostic Cisneros, is the latest in our ground-breaking Gypsy Maker project, an initiative that supports the development of innovatively created artistic works by Gypsy, Roma and Traveller artists. The Gypsy Maker 5 project expands the work of the RCAC by continuing to engage GRT communities with the wider public in an ongoing dialogue about the ways in which art continues to inform our lives today.

The exhibition is commissioned by the RCAC with support from the Arts Council of Wales.

“Ballet Cymru are honoured to be supporting and endorsing the fifth iteration of the Gypsy Maker programme – a platform showcasing the incredible talents of GRT artists. Meeting Rosa, and her generosity in sharing some of her stories and experiences, has been inspirational. Ballet Cymru looks forward to developing our future partnership with the Romani Cultural Arts Company and the vibrant and exciting communities they work with.” – Amy Doughty, Assistant Artistic Director/Cyfarwyddwr Artistig Cynorthwyol, Ballet Cymru

“We are so proud to continue our ground-breaking work with GRT artists, with support from the Arts Council of Wales. This project will strengthen the role of Gypsies, Roma and Travellers on the arts scene in Wales, the UK and beyond.”  – Isaac Blake, Director of the Romani Cultural & Arts Company.

“The ground-breaking work of the RCAC in supporting Gypsy, Roma and Traveller artists is unparalleled. The Gypsy Maker project is unique worldwide in commissioning new bodies of work by GRT artists thus enabling the production of significant new knowledge from an underrepresented group and making a valuable contribution to international contemporary art and cultural discourse.”  – Dr Daniel Baker.
