The exhibition Stories of the Roma People is part of the project Museum of  Personal History of the Roma People, conducted by Fade In in partnership with Roma Resource Centre from Darda on the territory of Osijek-Baranja County and Brod-Posavina County in the period from February 2018 to July 2019. The project has been financed with funds provided by the European Union through the European Social Fund, totalling 994.190,73 kn in eligible project costs.

As part of the project Museum of Personal History of the Roma People, sixteen young members of the Roma community aged 15 to 25 from Darda and Slavonski Brod acquired a wide array of creative knowledge and skills in the fields of audio-visual recording, conducting of interviews, and film editing.

The aim of the project Museum of Personal History of the Roma People is the inclusion of young members of the Roma community in the creation of cultural product, bringing closer the history of Croatian Roma groups to the wider community, and their integration in society though the cultural and artistic project that is focused on the strengthening of Romani identity through personal stories, portrait photographs, and items that bear significance to the storytellers.
