Foto Friendship connects children across cultures giving them a chance to listen and be heard.
Foto Friendship is a volunteer led project working with partners collaboratively in Australia and Timor-Leste.
Foto Friendship was founded in 2014 in Dili Timor-Leste by Australians Tammy Burnstock and Wendy Chandler. In 2016 Anastácio Maderia de Araújo joined the team as the facilitator in Timor-Leste. Anastácio collaborated with the Gembel Art Collective to provide mentorship and photography workshops to the Timorese participants.
“Foto Friendship helps us to connect with Australian students. We share our culture and get to know each other from the pictures we create and the history we write.” Anastácio Maderia de Araújo
