Organiser Phiren Amenca
Phiren Amenca is a network of Roma and non-Roma volunteers and voluntary service organizations creating opportunities for non-formal education, dialogue and engagement, in order to challenge stereotypes and racism. Each spring and fall Phiren Amenca hosts in cooperation with member organizations, this time specifically with Roma Onlus and CSD Diaconia Valdese, a one week seminar for current volunteers and volunteer candidates from around Europe focusing on the exchange of experience and on Roma history, antigypsyism, discrimination, stigmatization, xenophobia, identity and culture; globalization and migration; as well as youth engagement and Roma initiatives in Europe.
“Demystifying Roma: Challenging Stereotypes and Narratives about Roma” Phiren Amenca Volunteer Seminar will be a key event in the network’s goals of creating opportunities for non-formal education, dialogue and engagement to challenge stereotypes and racism. The seminar will take place from May 12th until May 19th, 2013, in Florence, Italy. The seminar will also further enhance co-operation and learning among member organizations and external partners. Also the seminar will serve to further strengthen the network’s platform of volunteers and former volunteers, serving to strengthen their role as multipliers and promoters of voluntary service and engagement. The working language is English.
