Information Leaflet by a young person

 

We’ve been blown away by this information leaflet produced by Christina Alexis Stewart. Christina’s directness and honesty should be a lesson to young people and school staff.  She goes to great lengths to challenge the stereotypes associated with being a Traveller. The leaflet has really useful information and it provides a unique perspective from the view of a young Traveller living in Scotland today.

Crystal's Vardo

Crystal’s Vardo Tour,
13-17 May 2019

Ahead of the Gypsy Roma Traveller History month, STEP is delighted to support a tour of the theatre production “Crystal’s Vardo” in 5 primary schools, as well as at the Declaration Festival 2019  (free, ticketed).

Written by Suzanna King of Friends, Families and Travellers, Crystal’s Vardo is a play that examines the impact of being bullied at school on a young Gypsy girl’s life. It also explores the rich history and culture of Gypsies and Travellers to raise awareness and improve understanding of the Travelling community.

Crystal, a young Gypsy girl who has been bullied at school, runs away from home with her Grandfather’s vardo and pony only to find herself lost and miles from anywhere familiar. She has not no choice but to put her trust in the audience to help her find her way back. As Crystal begins to tell the story of her ancestors, something extraordinary happens and Crystal and her companions find themselves far back in time, when the first Gypsies migrated from Northern India. By piecing together the shards of her ancestry, she regains a new confidence in her own identity, whilst raising the awareness of her new friends.

On board the NHS Grampian mobile information bus

We are delighted to be working in partnership with Moray Council, Grampian NHS Trust and the Gypsy/Traveller community. The Community Information bus will be used by Moray Gypsy/Traveller educator Jo Kirby to share information about education and other services with Traveller families who may be mobile or based in remote locations. Our future plans are to develop specific education resources for the bus that can supplement learning during periods of mobility.
