Explore the Roma culture through this beautiful exhibition that we organised at the Islington Museum. Written and oral histories, along with photographic works by young Roma  refugees, give a fascinating window into a culture of which many people in Britain have little knowledge. Music, art, fashion and life in London are all themes that are examined to take you on a journey to experience the essence of Roma culture. The amazing paths that have lead these people from India all the way to Islington today are a celebration of life, family and expectations for the future.
