How long will the experience last and what does it entail?
The experience will last about 20-25 minutes in total, including the art viewing period and the questionnaire and discussion period. First, you will be asked some demographic questions and then be given time to look at two artworks in our gallery space. After the viewing, you will be asked a series of questions about yourself and your viewing experience on a digital survey. You will then be able to speak with the museum staff and researchers about any questions you may have.
Do I have to take part?
As participation is entirely voluntary, it is up to you to decide whether or not to take part. If you do decide to take part, you will be asked to provide your consent before you begin the experience. If you decide to take part, you are still free to withdraw at any time and without giving a reason. At the end, you will be compensated with a café voucher.
Will there be any data collected about me?

All information collected about you during the course of the experience will be kept strictly confidential. This research has been reviewed and approved by the Research Ethics and Integrity Sub-Committee of Goldsmiths University, London.
Will this data be published anywhere?
Data from this experience will be used as a part of a postgraduate project for the MPhil/PhD Psychology programme at Goldsmiths, University of London and may be included in future published research. Collected information about participants will not be individually identifiable in any publication.
