The fact that we came to the Roma ghetto of Moldava Nad Bodvou with the 'artist ambassadors' of the Yehudi Menuhin Foundation, along with Ida Kelarova and her Roma musicians, was very powerful for the children because they had the opportunity to discover cultures around the world. At one point they learned Brazilian samba, something they never would have done if we had not introduced them to it.

We try to support collective creation through the arts, something that can change reality and give hope. If we work on ourselves and find strength in ourselves, find the resilience to get out of a difficult situation – I think that is possible through arts.

There is work being done with the Roma communities to change the stereotypes that are very negative and should end. But, apart from giving money to local associations working with Roma people, governments from all the EU Member States should include in the curriculum for children in primary school classes on Roma culture. That would change everything. People would no longer be afraid of Roma people – they would appreciate them, and love them as I do. And I have known them for 20 years.
