Fericirii Festival

RO: Despre proiectul nostru

Gipsy Eye este un ONG dedicat romilor și non-romilor care lucrează în zona Pașcani. Promovăm cultura acestora și susținem tinerii din această comunitate. Practic, organizația lucrează într-o școală dintr-un sat, cu copii care se confrunta cu situații dificile, ajutându-i la învățătură și prin stabilirea activităților de educație non-formală. Pe de altă parte, organizația are o trupă de dans tradițional de romi care participă la numeroase festivaluri din întreaga țară și chiar în străinătate. Gipsy Eye găzduiește mai mulți voluntari europeni care lucrează în școală și susțin activitățile asociației.

Unul dintre scopurile principale ale asociației noastre este de a promova diversitatea interculturală și dialogul. Noi credem cu tărie că arta și cultura sunt mijloace eficiente prin care putem să ajungem  la îndeplinirea acestor obiective.

EN:  About our project

Gipsy Eye is a Roma and non-Roma NGO working in the area of Pascani in eastern Romania. We are promoting Roma culture and empowering the youth from this community. Practically, the organization is working in a village school with children facing difficult situations, helping them to succeed in their studies and setting up non formal education activities. On the other hand, the organization has a troupe of traditional Roma dance taking part in many festivals in the whole country and even abroad. Gipsy Eye is hosting several European volunteers working in the school and sustaining the association activities.   

One of our association’s main purpose is to promote intercultural diversity and dialogue. We strongly believe that art and culture are efficient means to fulfill these objectives.

With this in mind, we are willing to organize an international film festival in Sodomeni -the village we are based in- in the Moldovan region of Romania. Through this activity we want to bring an intercultural understanding on the local level between Roma and non-Roma populations.  As well we want to set up a new cultural event in a place with a low offer of this kind. We are willing to give opportunities to the local youth, in order for them to experience volunteering in a cultural project.

 

FF, 2st edition

The festival is going to be called Fericirii Festival. The name is related to the street it has taked place in during the 1st edition, Strada Fericirii (The Street of Happiness). The village is situated really close to the city of Pașcani. The upper part of this street is known as being the location of many Roma people with low incomes. This year the event will happen in the little town of Bratesti, 5km from Sodomeni a little town at 5km from Pascani , in Moldova , Judetul Iasi.

The festival will take place on the 4th and 5th of August from 2 pm to 1 am.

Who are we going to involve?

Through this event, Gispy Eye wants to involve the local youth. We already gathered more than 40 volunteers from Pașcani’s high schools. They are being implied in the festival organization on a large scale. We believe this is an opportunity for them to gain skills in many fields, as well as experiencing volunteering. We think it can also bring them an intercultural experience. Indeed, the organization is also hosting European volunteers ( Only French this years ) who are undertaking an active and indispensable part to this activity together with several local members of the NGO.


FR:  A propos du projet

Gipsy Eye est une ONG Rom et non-Rom travaillant dans les environs de Pascani, dans l’est de la Roumanie. Nous visons à promouvoir la culture Rom et à aider la jeunesse issue de cette communauté. En pratique, l’organisation travaille dans une école de village avec des enfants faisant face à des situations difficiles, les aidant à mieux réussir leurs études et mettant en place des activités d’éducation non formelle. D’un autre coté, l’organisation a une troupe de danse traditionnelle Rom qui prend part a beaucoup de festivals dans tout le pays et même à l’étranger. Gipsy Eye accueille aussi des volontaires européens travaillant à l’école et aidant dans les activités de l’association.   

L’un des buts principaux de l’association est de promouvoir la diversité et le dialogue interculturel. Nous croyons profondément que l’art et la culture sont des moyens efficaces de remplir ces objectifs. 

Avec cette idée en tête, nous souhaitons organiser un festival international de films à Sodomeni -le village dans lequel nous sommes basés- dans la Moldavie de Roumanie. A travers cette activité, nous souhaitons apporter une compréhension interculturelle au niveau local entre les populations Rom et non-Rom. Egalement, nous voulons mettre en place une nouvelle offre culturelle dans un endroit où elles sont peu nombreuses. Nous voulons donner des opportunités à la jeunesse locale, de façon à ce qu’ils puissent expérimenter le volontariat dans un projet culturel.

FF, 2éme édition

Le festival se nommera Fericirii Festival. Le nom vient de la rue dans laquelle il se déroulera, Strada Fericirii (la Rue du Bonheur). Le village est tout près de la ville de Pașcani. La partie supérieure de la rue est connue pour être habitée par beaucoup de Roms avec de faibles revenus. L’événement se passera dans le jardin d’un bâtiment détenu par l’association dans le village voisins de Bratesti , 10km de Pascani , et 5km de Sodomeni.

Le festival prendra place les 4 et 5 juillet de 14 heures à 1 heure du matin.

Qui allons nous impliquer?

A travers cette événement, Gipsy Eye souhaite impliquer la jeunesse locale. Nous avons déjà rassemblés plus de 40 volontaires des lycées de Pascani qui sont très impliqués dans l’organisation du festival. Nous croyons que, pour eux, il s’agit là d’une opportunité d’acquérir de nombreuses compétences dans beaucoup de domaines, ainsi que d’expérimenter le volontariat. Nous pensons également pouvoir leur apporter une expérience inter-culturelle. L’organisation accueille des volontaires européens qui assument une partie active et indispensable de cette activité en compagnie de plusieurs membres locaux de l’ONG.
