Needy village in Hungary shows off murals by Gypsy artists

Fri Oct 25, 2013 13:37:30

Roma artists from Hungary and across Europe have finished up a project to paint large murals on the outside walls of 33 homes in Bodavalenke, a small Hungarian settlement in one of the poorest regions in the country.

Many of the settlement's 200 residents live in deep poverty and 90-percent of them are gypsies, also known as Roma.

The project was designed to help the Roma take pride in their culture, to showcase their skills and to attract tourists to the area.
