Consent and the Media

Consenting to a media interview can be a wonderful opportunity to get a story heard and to move people with experiences and knowledge. But it can sometimes lead to survivors feeling triggered during or after the experience, or their story being edited in a way that they’re not happy with. How can survivors work together with journalists and broadcasters who cover these stories to ensure the published piece benefits survivors, the media, and the public? This panel shares experiences from survivors who have worked with the media, journalists who have covered these issues and charity sector professionals who work with both activists and the media. Curated by On Road Media who work with activists and the media to promote new content and a better understanding of social issues through the project.
