According to unofficial data, there are around 2000 Roma living in Maribor and its surroundings, who were moving here in last decades and therefore don't have the status of indigenous inhabitants. In 1996 the Romano Pralipe Roma society was founded in Maribor with the purpose of preserving Roma cultural identity, ensuring mutual help and arranging the situation of Roma in the Republic of Slovenia. The society is dedicated to cultural activity, cooperation with various institutions in the Republic of Slovenia, solving the Roma issue and particularly to improving the situation of Roma inhabitants in Maribor and its surroundings.

Nevertheless, the Roma community is still faced with discrimination and violation of human rights, as the question often arises whether the non-Roma children will attend school together with Roma children, and whether the parents and kids of non-Roma population will accept the Roma community. Based on these and other facts, we are certain that the ROMfest cultural programme, which has been organised by KIBLA Association for Culture and Education (ACE KIBLA) and Romano Pralipe Roma Society, could make a substantial contribution to inter-ethical harmony and coexistence in common environment by bringing the Roma culture closer to us.
