5 May (postponed due to corona)
Roma Station, Preradovičeva 1, Maribor
In 2020, the Association EPEKA, a social enterprise, together with its partner Student Campus, a social enterprise, will continue to organise cultural and educational events promoting Roma inclusion. This will increase intercultural awareness and at the same time further commemorate one of the biggest Roma holidays – 6 May, Ederlezi or Djurdje Day (according to the Gregorian calendar).
This year, we have specifically focused on topics that we feel need to be addressed as a priority given the slow progress in the community, which is of course our shared responsibility. These are the employment and inclusion of Roma women, socially responsible employment and the involvement of employers in the process of social inclusion (Fair employment), and educating the majority population about the importance of antigypsyism and how it appears in everyday life.
The programme is supported by the European Social Fund, the Youth Office of the Republic of Slovenia, the Office for Nationalities of the Republic of Slovenia and the Southeast European University.
