Gypsy Project

Gypsy Project

ProMo-Cymru was commissioned by Cardiff Gypsy and Traveller Project to work with the Gypsy Community of Shirenewton in Gwent. ProMo arranged for tutors to help the girls with designing and producing wedding themed costumes which were presented at the Newport Fashion Show.

During the 6 month project, the young people learnt various skills including team working, design, sewing photography, sound recording and video recording. The young people successfully exhibited their costumes at the Newport Fashion Show which was featured in the Travellers’ Times.

ProMo produced a video detailing the development and the achievements of the young people over the course of the 6 months. The success of the project led to ProMo-Cymru being commissioned by Rhymney High School to produce a film for the Gypsy community to encourage further education.
