"Meaningful participation involves letting oneself experience fully the process of collaboration, attributing value to all stories and adopting an ethics of relationship."

This article discusses the experience of a participatory photography project that brought together young people from the Congolese, Rwandan, Burundian, and Ugandan communities living in Sydney, Australia, whose lives are still impacted by the legacy of the conflicts they sought to leave behind in the African Great Lakes region. This initiative, which was designed to provide a space to encourage communication between different groups and enable the promotion of peace between communities starting from the youth, is analysed here, and reflections are offered on the use of this method with diaspora groups.
