Moira will be looking at the relationship between creative identity and place by exploring how a creative Maltese identity changes, adapts and whether it becomes multilayered when we are exposed to a different culture and/or make another country our home
She will be focusing more specifically on creative identities as creatives tend to rely on their surroundings for inspiration. In addition, changes in their identity will likely be reflected in their work, as we see in many overseas art residencies. Are layers of identity necessary for growth in creative work? The final goal is to collate the research, illustrations and 3D objects in a creative E-book and distribute the research to readers. Her work can be followed through https://medium.com/@Moirascicluna
