Our expertise is in the planning and development of intimate participatory projects that encourage meaningful participation beyond 'inclusion' and towards community connection through the cycle of belonging, participation and capacity-building.
The Foundling Archive sources funding from small local council community grants funds, crowd sourcing and other independent funding pools. We utilise the resources available within the communities we collaborate with - local businesses, libraries, community halls and local media outlets. Each project adds to our oral history collection - which aims to document Australian culture and society through the perspective of the everyday experience.
