Graduation of the 1st year of Romaversitas Children's.

It was absolutely perfect, for which we can thank doc. Jurine Rusnáková, director of the Institute of Romological Studies at Constantine the Philosopher University in Nitra. Ensuring adult "graduation" down to the smallest detail was gowns, diplomas, anthems, just everything.
There was perhaps only one single parent, who was bravely represented by our leaders.

The first year of Romaversitas Children's was so full of interesting moments and situations, full of new experiences, that we just have a lot of material that we could spam you for the next few weeks.

But don't worry, we will select only the most interesting ones;).

And so we have a vlog about lectures.

Apropos, what do you think first when you say university? Most people probably have lectures. And that was the first thing we knew our Romaversitas must contain;).

We started with a lecture on self-cognition, went smoothly into the history of the Roma, then we got to know the life of the Vlach Roma until we ended up with the Roma language.

Thanks to all participating lecturers.

n addition to learning at Constantine the Philosopher University in Nitra, we went to see this beautiful city one evening, where we could not miss the castle and its beautiful park.

The matriculation of students of the 1st year of the Romaversitas Children's Festival organized by the Civic Association Dakujem - "PAĽIKERAV" at the Constantine the Philosopher University in Nitra.

When we were designing the Children's Romaversitas project, we did not have such "noble" ideas of matriculation. But a phone call with doc. - distinguished representatives of the University in gowns, the anthem of the Slovak Republic, the anthem of the UKF University in Nitra, the anthem of Gaudeamus igitur, and, of course, matriculation decrees;).

Of course, there was also a speech by a student representative who was beautifully presented by Nikolka only 10 years old;).
Just everything was as it should be;).

Ms doc. Jurina Rusnáková, thank you for your help

 We had a lot of respect,  before this part of the program, that we wouldn't have an audience with the writers, but do you know what happened? Despite the fact that it had rained a few minutes before the beginning of the discussion, the audience came and was above our expectations ;).
And that is why we cannot not repeat the words of our leader, who she said directly on stage - "Roma love literature".

Two extraordinary gentlemen during the Park Concert behind Paľikerav: Maroš Balog, who greatly moderated the concert in his own style and the writer Richard Rychtarech, about whom we will disclose such a century - our reviewer Ivetka noticed on his FB that she is in Kosice and mentioned our leader. And there is no need for a lot of incentives to fulfill our dreams - and in less than two hours this author also appeared with a gift at the celebration of Ivetka's graduation.

This event was supported by the Fund for the Support of National Minorities Culture.

It was our first organized camp and we will tell you that it was not the last. 

It was all in our hands from the very beginning - we prepared its methodology at the weekend meeting, chose the most suitable accommodation for us, ... Everything you can think of about the camp, so it was all in the hands of KKP members. And who were our campers? 

The pupils who passed the school reading competition and were the best of the best. And believe that since the beginning of our common camp trip, we have found that their interest in books is really huge. 

We thank the Office of the Government Plenipotentiary for Roma Communities for the opportunity to realize this camp.


Deň Rómov

Today we have a special video for you. 

Today we do not publish any video review, but we bring you a vlog prepared for you by Miška. We are not publishing it on this day by chance - just a week ago (08.04.) Was International Roma Day, and we attended two events on this day. at the discussion of the Public Library of Ján Bocatius in Šaca. 

How it happened there, you will learn in the enclosed insert :).

Picnic with writers supported by the Fund for the Support of Culture of Native Minorities

Do you know what we dreamed about 2 years ago when we founded the Paľikerav Book Club? We wanted to show that Roma are not only dancers, musicians or singers, but that they also excel in intellectual activities, such as reading books and reciting. And at the same time we wanted to bring literature closer to people. 

And thanks to the support of the National Minority Culture Fund, we managed to get a grant for organizing 2 days of Picnic with Writers :) And where to organize a picnic in February, when it is cold outside, snow and strong wind? Yet in the school library. 

Tens of children heard the stories of the authors, learned something new about their work, learned what to do if they wanted to become authors, read together excerpts from their creation, etc. ... 

You might not believe how many pupils have enrolled in reading books and proudly told us the story of their last read book, and at the same time, many teachers have praised their ability to express themselves beautifully in written words. with the writers :) 

The weather shows us that we could realize it also in the open air.

Do you know what we are trying to do in this "booktuber" world? Sure, we read and review books for you, sharing our reading world with you, which we have kept to ourselves so far. 

For us, the book is a means of blurring differences, a way of demolishing prejudices against the Roma, a means of socializing society and ultimately of motivating others to read. we decided to bring the book, the literature, to people in a way that is close to them.

We want to show people that the writer is a person of flesh and bone, who will sit down on a blanket and picnic with you if necessary. , thank God, we did this thanks to the Fund for the Support of National Minorities Culture and our project Picnic with Writers. 

We would like to thank Mr. József Ravász, Kristína M ojžišová and Dominika Badžová, a representative of the Roma Documentation and Information Center from the State Scientific Library and a representative of the ROLIK-Roma Literary Club. 

We thank the Važecká Exchanger for the opportunity to carry out the event in these beautiful spaces.

Mikuláš na ZŠ Galaktická 9, Košice

This is how it looked when Mikuláš (Martin Seman) came to Košice primary school, which is attended only by Roma, with a lot of gifts for good and less obedient children. 

Thank you for everything

Deň Paramís 

23.11.2018 Abel Ravasz, Plenipotentiary of the Government of the Slovak Republic for Roma Communities, attended the school. He accepted the challenge, read the fairy tale in a duo with our Iveta, and even though the duel did not lose, he donated books to the library. You can see what it was like in the enclosed insert.

Do you dream of meeting an actor? And what about the actress from the most recently watched series The Dads? Is it unrealistic? But what would, even big dreams come true. Look at our little Mirka. She dreamed a meeting with successful Slovak actress Jana Kovalčikova, and she succeeded. Of course, the dream sometimes needs to help :).  But you already know that

Paramisa Day  with Usmievankou

Paramisa Day 1. Are you curious what it looked like when the President arrived at Galaktická 9 Private Primary School in Košice?

"Once it all changes, break through all the walls can." Do you know these words? Who knows the well-known hit Night Nocen. 

These words are really symbolic nowadays and we are very glad that their authors participated in our paramis and they came to read a Romany pupil's story, and you can find out about the participation of the band Nocadeň in this insert :) You will find out that Rasťo Trnka came to the children and the children welcomed him with such applause as if they met a big star Johnny from Radio Košice also read them, and the pupils enjoyed it :) 

Just imagine, let them try the work of an editor for a while :) And to make matters worse, Košice came to school cultural guru Richard Herrgott
