GRTHM Competition 2012

Diamond Jubilee Postcard Celebrations

Gypsy Roma Traveller History Month (GRTHM) in June 2012 coincides with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. This year’s GRTHM competition is again being organised by the National Association of Teachers of Travellers and other professionals (NATT+). Both the GRTHM and Queen’s Diamond Jubilee events are being brought together in NATT+ Postcard Celebrations competition.

Postcard Sets

NATT+ have produced a set of postcards that compare images from 1952 and today in 2012. Sets of these postcards are being distributed to schools and educational settings nominated by NATT+ members and Traveller Education Services.

Children and young people are being invited to complete the reverse of the postcards with stories, poems, collages, photographs, drawings or paintings inspired by the images on the cards and research into Gypsy, Roma and Traveller history and culture. The backs of each card have some suggested starting points.

The postcards can be displayed in the classroom or used for competition entries.
