I moved on again to the West Park Centre...

I had been invited to the Official Opening of Ferdinand Koci's wonderful Art Exhibition. Ferdinand Koci is a Roma from Albania who has exhibited his work all over Europe. He won the Beaux Artes Competition in France and has a growing international reputation. His art conveys great stories and is rooted in his Roma heritage with powerful portrayal of the issues facing the Roma communities across Europe. The art work is loaned from Ferdinand's own private collection and shows off his talent and amazing ability to tell stories through these fascinating and beautiful pictures.

This free exhibition is at the West Park Centre until Christmas and schools have a unique opportunity to visit the exhibition with groups of children. The Gypsy Roma Traveller Achievement Service have also produced a fantastic Information Pack which is free for teachers bringing children to the exhibition. To arrange a visit and pick up a pack you can contact Helen Crossley at the West Park Centre on 01132748050 or Further information about the work of the Gypsy Roma Traveller Achievement Service, Ferdinand Koci and the exhibition is available at
