International Women’s Day in Fir Vale

Terezia Rostas and other members of the local Roma community partntered in a very successful event to celebrate International Women’s Day.  The event was held at ACT (Aspriring Communities Together) which is based in the Fir Vale Centre in Sheffield.  Terezia brought her extensive collection (or at least part of it!) of traditional women’s clothes worn by the Roma community in and from Romania.  Community members from all walks of life and backgrounds came and tried on the clothes and joined in dancing.  Terezia also set up a very informative display about Roma history, culture and contemporary life.  There was much interest and alot of learning took place.
