Mis Hanes Sipsiwn-Teithwyr Tor-faen

Torfaen Gypsy

fel rhan o’r dathliadau yng Nghymru ar gyfer Mis Hanes y Sipsiwn, Roma, Teithwyr 2010, ariannodd yr Academi ddau ddiwrnod o weithdai ysgrifennu creadigol Sipsiwn-Teithwyr yn Ysgol Gyfun West Monmouth, Tor-faen.

Bu deuddeg o ddisgyblion sy’n defnyddio Gwasanaeth Cymorth Addysg Teithwyr Tor-faen yn gweithio gyda’r awdur a’r bardd, Anita Flowers i greu barddoniaeth yn archwilio hunaniaeth ddiwylliannol ac yn dathlu arferion a thraddodiadau Cymuned Sipsiwn-Teithwyr Tor-faen.

Bu’r cyfranogwyr hefyd yn creu cyfres o hunanbortreadau ac yn cofnodi eu cerddi. Cafodd pob cyfranogwr gopi wedi’i recordio ar CD o’r cerddi a’r delweddau fel dathliad parhaol o’r gweithdai.
