Abstract

An exhibition exploring the visual and fictional representations of Gypsy and Traveller lives. Explore visual and fictional representations of Gypsy and Traveller lives, made and collected by non-Travellers.

Learn about Gypsy and Traveller lives in the past, the struggle for rights, and the community’s responses to being represented by those outside it.
