In this talk from June 2021 for Possibility Project, Ivellisse Morales, Founder & CEO at bombilla, joins Tania Anaissie, Founder and CEO at Beytna Design, to discuss our collective responsibility as creators to pass the mic and co-create the stories we are telling in ways that are equitable, authentic, and not replicating harm.
In the sector, we use stories and images to capture the interest (and care) of community members and potential donors.
- How often are those stories and images used in extractive ways, that reproduce the dynamics of giver/receiver, service provider/recipient?
- How do the stories we tell and the images we choose, replicate harm and perpetuate false narratives?
- Who is collecting, shaping, and telling stories, and for whose benefit?
- How can story be rooted in powerful and authentic co-creation, and be shaped by the voices and leadership of those at the center of the work?
We are thrilled to highlight the perspectives of:
