Gypsy children will be showing their circus skills
Celebrations for Gypsy Roma and Traveller History Month in Wales will be launched in Cardiff on Thursday.
Children will learn who has won a competition for schools to design posters for the main events in June.
These are planned for the Newport Riverfront on 17 June and Cardiff's Pierhead building on 29 June.
No Fit State Circus will work with youngsters on the Shirenewton site while Cardiff-based Cinetig will be helping others create animations.
The events will also feature storytellers, arts and crafts, and academic lectures.
Gypsy Roma and Traveller History Month has been held in England for a number of years with the aim of breaking down the barriers of mistrust and to create opportunities for young gypsies to thrive in the world.
Isaac Blake overcame many obstacles to build a career in dance
It came to Wales for the first time last year with a small scale event in Cardiff Bay.
It included Irish dancing, circus skills, paper flower making and dukkering, better known as fortune telling.
The event was followed by the creation of a Romani Cultural and Arts Company aimed at promoting a positive view of gypsy and traveller culture.
The celebrations in Wales are being led by Isaac Blake, a Cardiff-born gypsy who has made a career as a contemporary dancer and choreographer.
With support from the Black Voluntary Sector Network Wales, he's hoping to build on the success of last year's event with more ambitious plans.
An official launch for Gypsy Roma and Traveller History Month will be held at the Senedd in Cardiff Bay on 27 May led by AM Helen Mary Jones.
