ATD Fourth World, in partnership with artist and photographer Eva Sajovic, is proud to present The Roles We Play: A Method of Genuine Participation.
This new film traces the course of the project over the last decade and its attempts to provide a forum for people with experience of poverty to challenge the widespread negative stereotypes of their lives by giving participants the tools to speak out and have their voices heard.
In highlighting the different stages of the project, from photo exhibition and series of residential weekends and participatory film project to full-colour book and multimedia exhibition, the film explores the impact of genuine participation and the importance of recognising the ways in which people in poverty contribute to their own families, neighbourhoods and communities.
