The Untold Stories – Poveşti Nespuse project aims to document and to promote Roma culture and identity. It supports an increased awareness of the cultural and social history of the Roma population in Romania through artistic events and research.

The initiator of the Untold Stories – Poveşti Nespuse project is
Alina Şerban
a Royal Academy of Dramatic Art graduate
Roma actress, author and producer of theater plays and artistic productions.


The website will host articles showing the results of our research, articles about Roma slavery in the Romanian Principalities and the ways in which this history is recognized and understood within different communities: academic, clerical or activist etc.

Stories and Fairytales

Through this project we popularize Roma stories and fairytales by publishing an online collection of Roma fairytales, that will be available in three languages, namely Romani, Romanian and English.

Artistic Events

All these will become the basis of the cultural and artistic events that are to be developed during this project and that will culminate in the setting up of a theatre event.
