This workshop offers a space for participants to understand antigypsyism as racism against people or groups perceived as so called “gypsies” and explore ways to actively address and counteract this form of discrimination.

We will delve into the historical context and societal impact of antigypsyism, shedding light on the prejudices and stereotypes that have marginalized concerned communities for centuries. Participants will critically examine the root causes and manifestations of antigypsyism, reflecting on their own biases and privileges to foster personal growth and empathy.
