About the DreamMakers project:
DreamMakers is a UK-wide project initiated by Eva in collaboration with 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning and funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation. This project expands Eva’s interest in the rights and representation of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities and develops the work she began in Belonging: Travellers Stories, Travellers Lives (198 March 2010). Eva has worked with a number of agencies in each location, to bring together young people between the ages of 13-19 from Roma, English Romany, Irish Traveller and non-Roma. With the DreamMakers, Eva shifts the focus away from herself as the chronicler of these communities, placing the tools of creative and journalistic communication into the hands of the groups of young people, encouraging them to tell their own stories, thus becoming advocates of their own experiences and those of their communities.
