Obtaining meaningful informed consent from communities and individual participants is an important and complex part of doing creative work in communities. The Informed Consent Project was commissioned as an accompanying resource to VicHealth’s Arts About Us program (previously titled Promoting Diversity through the Arts) but has far wider application across the arts, community and media sectors. The report draws on the experience and expertise of professionals across these sectors to develop principles and considerations that bring together underlying ethics, issues and practice around the use of personal stories and images in the public domain.
