12th November 2020:  Traveller Movement Annual Conference

This year we're doing things a little differently!

It's so important that despite the challenging circumstances everyone has found themselves in, that the annual conference continues to provide a platform for information sharing, and a vital online space for discussion.

This year's conference, entitled Our Truth. Our Voice, will speak truth to power and reclaim the anti-Traveller narrative that dominates the media and political discourse. The conference will bring together activists and changemakers who will discuss how this can be achieved. Now is the time to reshape the narrative and discuss solutions for the advancement of Gypsies, Roma and Travellers across every area of life.

You can book tickets here for our online conference.

March 2020: Never Going to beat you Film Premier

‘Never Going to Beat You’ was originally a drama play about domestic abuse written by the late playwright Jennie Buckman from Giants Theatre Company together with 18 Gypsy and Traveller women. After two successful shows at the Blue Elephant Theatre in 2016, Traveller Movement and Giant’s Theatre decided to adapt the play into a film.

The film is directed and produced by Jennie’s son Michael Buckman (Crispy Biscuit Films).

‘Never Going to Beat You’ threads together the varying and different stories of the 18 Gypsy and Traveller women, and it will raise awareness about domestic abuse within all communities. 

The screening was followed by a panel discussion about domestic abuse, mental health and well-being within the Gypsy and Traveller Communities.
