The Deep Shelter Project aims to create a collaboration between health care professionals and artists in hospitals with the scope of creating or enabling artwork that benefits the patient.

This project is an interdisciplinary process that serves to create an audio-visual language to be used within a hospital setting. The project aims to integrate artistic research with research carried out in the context it is being shown in. The artwork will be shown to two types of audiences – the target audience, who will consist of nurses and therapists (the care providers), patients or clients (the users) within a hospital or clinical setting and the second audience, who will be the people visiting a museum space or centre for creativity (the viewers). This will serve to expose art to new audiences so as to expand and increase society’s engagement with art content.

The Deep Shelter Project is supported through the Malta Arts Fund managed by Arts Council Malta
