Image shown: Exploring confidentiality

Visual artist Sarah Ruttle is carrying out a research project supported by the Arts Council, to identify the tensions that arise in confidentiality, decision making and consent within arts and health participatory practice. Through this investigation Sarah is looking at how ethical constraints influence a commitment to artistic outcome through participatory art with its planning, art creation and curating of artwork for exhibition. 

Sarah has designed a series of questions for artists, arts and health co-ordinators and healthcare professionals to inform this research. If you are interested in contributing please contact Sarah by e-mailing
