The "Romani Click" / "Romski Pstryk" is a result of collaboration between two artists: Malgorzata Mirga-Tas and Marta Kotlarska. The editions of this participative project were implemented in Szaflary (2007), Nowy Sacz (2008), Czarny Dunajec, Czarna Gora and Krosnica (2009),Ostrowsko(2012) and Maszkowice (2012) Roma settlements as well as in London, with Roma refugees from Poland and Slovakia. The artists invited young Roma to arrange pinhole photo illustrations of Romani stories and tales written by a Roma poet Jan Mirga. Children prepared the tales' scenery and took photos with hand-made pinhole cameras. Every project scene ended with a happening touching upon issues of lack of the dialogue between neighbouring communities. The temporary exhibition showing the works of Roma children was prepared and is still rented to everyone who wants to show it. Until now it was exhibited in over 30 venues in both Poland and the UK. In 2008, in London, the children picture book Romano Bumburumbum was printed and the photo album of the Romani Click's results from Polish settlements is due to be published in September 2010. The project was exhibited internationally including in Austrian Parliament in Vienna and in 2nd Roma Pavilion in Venice International Arts Biennale. The "Romani Click" project blossomed also with huge amounts of invitations from next "wojts"
(leaders) to the next Romani settlements and with interest in follow-up actions of those settlements, who already took part in it.
