Teman Gambar 2010 (Asialink Residency)

Teman gambar’ means ‘drawing friend’. Based on the pen-pal experience many people around the world remember from childhood, Asialink resident Elly Kent and Tlatah Bocah collaborated to implement a creative exchange. The exchange aimed to connect children who in Indonesia and children in Australian primary schools. Our original exchange focussed on children who were evacuated during the devastating eruptions of Mt Merapi in late 2010;  it was a wonderful way for Australian children to show support and care for their Teman Gambar. In Australia, over 500 children participated.
