Illustration of a triangle: ethics embodied in practice; values & principles that inform the work; legal and professional codes of conduct

What codes of practice guide your area of creative work? Key legislation includes the Equality Act, defamation and libel laws.

Think about how your own practice (as maker, teacher, student, researcher) relates to the other points of the triangle.

What values do you want people to sense in your work? Inclusion? Free expression? Anti-racism? Diversity? Respect for participants? Integrity and rigour?
