What is it about?

RoUm is our very own discarded objects rescue center, where Roma and artists come together to make interior design pieces out of discarded objects. RoUm enterprise is based on learning from Roma communities which have a long tradition of reusing, rethinking and upcycling discarded objects and turning what was a result of our discrimination into our social capital and business opprtunity.
