The East Midlands is home to three of the largest Gypsy groups in the country, and these groups have played an important role in the history of the Gypsy community as a whole. This project aims to give a voice to the Gypsy people so that they can record their heritage and challenge the perceptions of the settled community. Perceptions which have been largely surrounded by myths, stereotypes and prejudice. As modern Britain evaluates consumerism, environmentalism, assimilation, family values and identity, there is much in the heritage of the Gypsy community that will be of value to the wider community and we have tried to reflect these themes in our work.’
