AB  - A growing body of literature has explored the potential for arts-based methods to
      generate and disseminate research, particularly on sensitive or complex topics.
      This article presents DrawingOut, a metaphor-centred drawing workshop designed to
      collect visual and textual data about individuals' experiences of sensitive or
      taboo health experiences. The visual data, consisting of the artwork produced by 
      participants, and the textual data, all conversations and discussions occurring
      during the workshop, can also be used to create engaging outputs for
      dissemination. We piloted DrawingOut in a study of nine women with a minority
      ethnic or religious background in Cardiff, UK. The women were invited to
      participate in a series of structured drawing activities. The conversations
      occurring during the workshop were recorded and then subjected to thematic
      analysis. Results showed that women's views and experiences could be grouped in
      eight major themes covering their wellbeing, relationship with others, and
      healthcare views and experiences. We produced an A5 16-page booklet that presents
      the pilot study results, illustrated with participants' own drawings and quotes, 
      which was disseminated among participants, their community and other relevant
      stakeholders. This pilot study supports the view that healthcare actors can use
      the DrawingOut method to engage people to talk about sensitive health topics,
      while simultaneously providing them with an enjoyable and empowering research
      experience. In our pilot study the DrawingOut was successful in eliciting rich
      visual and textual data that captures a diversity of views and experiences, with 
      the added benefit that these can be used to produce engaging outputs for
