Free Prior Informed Consent & Iterative consent – What do they mean and why are they so important to co-creation?
The Collaboratory Conversation Series episode Community Engagement and Informed Consent – A Conversation with Azure Hermes talked about a couple of concepts that are really important ethical underpinnings to co-creative processes that work across differentials of power – the principles of Free, Prior & Informed Consent (FPIC) and Iterative Consent.
