Making Media with Communities: Guidance for Researchers


Resource authors: Ann Light et al.

These guidelines set out a framework of ethical and practical considerations for creating media outputs with communities as part of research. They are a suggested way of approaching making media with communities. They have been written in conjunction with the development of an online archive for the audio and audio-visual elements of the current Connected Communities programme. Anyone embarking on a research project that involves making recorded outputs with communities can use these guidelines as a planning framework to think about the process, the approach and the legacy of their project. They have a strong focus on who has control over the project throughout and how that control impacts on project participants.
