Abstract:

An investigative report exploring tensions that arise in confidentiality, decision making and consent within an arts and health context – published through the support of the Arts Council’s Arts Participation Bursary Award 2014.

The area of Participatory Arts is an innovative one, where artists can work with healthcare professionals and together look at the priorities of each profession in order to implement an effective programme. This study will look at consent, confidentiality and decision-making in this interaction. In doing so areas discussed will include: artist’s responsibility; who has the final say in consent; disclosure of identity and what is art? Areas of crossover within the perspectives will be seen through: dignity of participant; processes of informed consent; clarity of intention and use of guidelines.
