A Gypsy’s Wish

A Gypsy’s Wish was a three year project that began in 2002 as a response to the needs of young Gypsy, Romany, Traveller people and a desire to encourage better understanding between their communities and the settled community. It was brought about with the help and support of a variety of individuals and organisations, including members of the Gypsy, Romany, Traveller community, the Children’s Fund, CSV Media, and Suffolk County Council.

The project brought together 50 Gypsy, Romany, Traveller volunteers and over the course of three years their voices, their hopes, and their fears were transformed into a creative undertaking. Everyone who took part had the opportunity to try their hand at acting, directing, editing, filming, and writing, whatever their experience, or lack of it.
