Working With Marginalised Communities: Let’s talk about ethics
A Practitioners Guide by Andrea Medrado and Isabella Rega, published by eVoices
Reflecting with artists, activists and development organisations we met along the eVoices journey, we develop an illustrated guide gathering principles to work ethically with marginalised communities, to avoid the risk to put people in danger.
