A photo exhibition on the life of a local Roma settlement opened in Leskolovo, Leningrad region. Volunteers and local Roma children made a total of over 20,000 photo shots and then chose the best ones for the exhibition. Local cultural centre in Leskolovo provided its premises for the exhibition. Earlier this year, on April 7, it also provided its premises for a concert devoted to International Romani Day. Organizers of the exhibition hope that cultural events such as these will help to break isolation of local Roma people from the rest of the community and will provide for greater friendship and tolerance in the area.
