Voices from the Wall

8 May - 17 May

voices from the wall

Exhibition & Talk – Dacians and Romanians in Britain

A new interactive exhibition and innovative creative writing project, Voices from the all explores shared histories and experiences between Britain and Romania, which began nearly two millennia ago with the building of Hadrian’s Wall and continues today.

There are now around 1 million Romanians living in the UK – most arriving in Britain in the last 20 years. But the earliest group of ‘Romanians’ to live and work here arrived more than 1900 years ago, as part of the Roman army, and Dacian soldiers were stationed on Hadrian’s Wall for centuries.

Nowadays, the links continue with the Romanian community, one of the largest in the UK, contributing to Britain’s way of life and economy on all levels. Romanian Sir George Iacobescu was the driving force behind the building of Canary Wharf, the second largest financial centre in Europe. In London, one in four builders is thought to be Romanian.

The exhibition, which is free to attend, will be visiting the Romanian Consulate on Manchester from 8th  to 17th May.

The project is run in partnership with the Romanian Cultural Institute in London, with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England and the Institute of Classical Studies
