The Spears of Daylight exhibition at St Patrick's University Hospital in James's Street, Dublin 8, will be on view over the next three months.

Funded by the Arts Council Artist in the Community Scheme, the six-month collaborative project is a visual interpretation of poems, short stories, songs and aphorisms written by patients who participated in creative writing courses.

Arts facilitator for the project Nicole Rourke said: "We started with five participants and by the end we had more than 300."
