The purpose of the project was the exploration of Roma culture found in the North-Szolnok micro-region.  To make Roma traditions, cultural and artistic values accessible to the public, to implement joint creative activities, thereby reducing existing social tensions in society, by providing access to cultural products to the population of disadvantaged settlements. A further aim was to make accessible local cultural values, to involve people of Roma origin and cultural organizations, strengthening cooperation for future events.

One of the project results was the Roma and poors’ food collection of the Great Plains. Another publication presented the typical Roma and Hungarian tales, beliefs, past legends, tales and beliefs associated with waters, wells, crosses, and bridges, of which 1,000 copies were printed in Hungarian, and the online and downloadable versions have been available in Hungarian, English and Romany in order to strengthen mutual acceptance, to pass on the cultural values. Guarding the traditions of the Great Plain has been done, the search for common values. The results of the collections have been made public and available to everyone.
