On the occasion of International Day of Roma, the project "No Climate for Nomads" from 31 March to 8 April 2023 examines the global connections of environmental racism: while (historically) nomadic groups are deprived of their livelihoods through environmental destruction, other people are forced to migrate – and subsequently stigmatised. 

For the 52nd ROMADAY, Roma, Black, Indigenous, traditionally nomadic and Persons of Colour will come together in Berlin – artists, academics and activists who in their performances, films, music and discussions are looking for ways to improve climate and environmental justice.

On 31.3. at 6.30 p.m., the programme will open in a market format with stands and info tables and artistic presentations on the stage. For those fasting during the month of Ramadan, as well as for everyone else, there will be food available. Roma who fled from Moldova to Berlin to escape inhumane living conditions and who are acutely threatened with deportation after the end of the winter deportation stop on 31 March will have their say. In addition, everyone who wants to prepare for the powerful Romaday parade on 8 April can print their own textiles!

Blue Desert

Fast, repetitive percussion rhythms are the basis of the music. Accompanied by spherical blues melodies and vocals in Tamashek and Arabic, the mix creates calm, sometimes powerful, dreamy atmospheres. The lyrics are about hope, human rights and life in exile.
