    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;Creative Informatics is an ambitious research and development programme based in Edinburgh, which aims to bring the city&amp;rsquo;s world-class creative industries and tech sector together, providing funding and development opportunities that enable creative individuals and organisations to explore how data can be used to drive ground-breaking new products, businesses and experiences. Creative Informatics is nurturing local talent through five key funding programmes and regular events that support Edinburgh&amp;rsquo;s creative industries to do inspiring things with data. This work is supported by research into the cluster and emerging data driven creative practices.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The Creative Informatics Ethics Statement has been created to capture the programme&amp;rsquo;s position on the values and priorities for the work we undertake and support, and forms part of our work to encourage best practices and thoughtful reflection on work with data and new technologies in the creative industries. This statement provides guidance for those working in and around the creative industries, or with data more broadly in a creative context, and should be used as a tool for reflection with prompts to consider, document, and review approaches and practices, and as a way to encourage positive engagement with legal and societal responsibilities. The authors are publishing this work openly as we enthusiastically welcome reuse and remixing of the Creative Informatics Ethics Statement and welcome questions or comments that may feed into future iterations and best practices.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
