This article presents a team’s engagement with a creative collaborative project challenging the myths about the sexuality of people with physical disabilities in South Africa. The article is presented as a reflective diary account, which has been constructed from minutes of meetings, email correspondence, and personal reflections of the activities undertaken. We reflect on the work we have done and what we have learned as well as the decisions and dilemmas we had along the way and the increasingly creative process. We reflect on our work with reference to participatory action research and the use of arts-based methods for generating and disseminating knowledge. We believe this can provide a useful and practical resource for researchers who are new to participatory research methods.
