Creative teenagers and young adults who grew up in Ferentari neighborhood in Bucharest write articles about Roma culture, with editorial guidance, as part of “Avdives, Khetanes!” (translation “Today, together!”) project implemented by Amfiteatru Foundation.
“Avdives, Khetanes!” aims to increase inclusion and develop the premises for a better quality of life for Roma children in Belin commune, Covasna county and in Ferentari marginalized neighbourhood (Sector 5, Bucharest).
Vlad is a 18 years old young adult, passionate about photography, who started in 2021 to publish articles about Roma culture. After documenting historical subjects and success stories about young Roma, he made some notes about how everything started for him. He used to work in supermarket, at 17, to earn the money he needed to continue school, and in April 2021 he had his first photo exhibition at Ferentari Studios #NESEMNIFICATIV (translation #INSIGNIFICANT).
