Explore an online preview of our postponed exhibition, organised in partnership with Coventry University and the Roma Project.

Following the announcement of our partnership with the Roma Project and Coventry University’s Centre for Dance Research earlier this year, we’re delighted to share an online preview of an exhibition originally scheduled to take place at the theatre this month.

Titled Generations, the exhibition shines a spotlight on Coventry’s Gypsy Roma Traveller (GRT) community, and launches online to coincide with International Romani Day on Wednesday 8 April. Featuring images of Roma families captured by photographers Antony Weir and Georgia Bond it is the follow up to a previous exhibition titled Family Matters / Chestiuni de familie. The online preview includes a selection of Weir’s images, with the full exhibition at the Belgrade now postponed until a later date.

The project has been organised in partnership with Coventry University’s Centre for Dance Research as part of the ongoing Roma Project, an initiative founded to tackle the exploitation of the Roma community and to advance their social inclusion in Coventry.

First held in Coventry as part of the university’s Romani Week celebrations in 2015, Weir’s Family Matters exhibition went on to appear at Drom Kotar Mestipen’s Roma Women’s Congress in Barcelona in 2018, and also formed part of a workshop on GRT people in Higher Education which took place at Coventry University’s ICE Building on Thursday 27 February.
