Roman camp sites in Österlen.
In collaboration with the Roma Culture Center in Malmö and the Regional Museum in Kristianstad, Kiviks Museum has run the project Roma camp sites during 2016-2017. Kiviks Museum has been responsible for collecting and documenting stories and pictures from the local population in Österlen about encounters with Roma during the 20th century, both positive and negative memories.
The project resulted in an exhibition at the Kiviks Museum in 2017 about Roma camp sites in Österlen and a lecture on the history of the Roma in Sweden. See the exhibitionRoman camp sites in Österlen. For material for the exhibition, we saythanks to.
