Route of Roma Culture and Heritage: Partner organisations

The Slovene Ethnographic Museum (SEM), founded in 1923 and located in Ljubljana, Slovenia, is a museum "for people, about people", a museum of cultural identities, the link between the past and the present, between our own and other cultures, between the world of nature and human civilisation.

 

The central museum of ethnology/anthropology, with Slovene and equally important non-European collections in the field of material, social and spiritual culture, which the museum collects, documents, researches, preserves and communicates to a very wide audience.

 


 

Chave Foun Winta (The Sons of the Wind). Created in 2001 in Aričge in the south-west of France, the association is a mediator to all public institutions to recognise the values and lifestyle of French Roma; a defender of Roma culture in France and Europe through cultural, educational and scientific events.

 

They work with other Roma associations throughout France, united in a federation, to propose solutions so that the French Roma are considered as "ordinary citizens" and not only as "nomads".
