Joining Communities: A Role for Reflection
MetadataShow full item record
In this chapter, I aim to provide newcomers to community-based projects with a summary of clues or hints about how they may approach such projects. Many suggestions relate to being aware of how a project may unfold regardless of its scale, location or complexity. The building of a solid, informed and honest team is of importance. The checklist included is built from personal reflections, drawn from each community-based project I have undertaken, with the aim of building greater sensitivity and awareness of community needs and the circumstances that surround them.
