Artlink, the hospital arts programme funded by Oxford Hospitals Charity, offers a range of creative projects and resources for staff to help you relax, unwind and decompress.
These offer you and your team the chance to take some important time for yourself – whether just a few minutes on your break or when switching off at the end of a busy day.
There are also creative resources to help your patients, which can be downloaded or ordered through the charity.
We hope you’ll find something here that suits you - whether some origami, music or crafts. If you have any ideas for creative projects or want to share your artwork, craft, poetry, or writing created over the past year then please do get in touch with Ruth Charity, Arts Coordinator at [email protected]
Patients can become bored and anxious in hospital so we’ve developed a range of activities to offer the calm and mental diversion that comes from being involved in a creative activity.
Take time out to immerse yourself in a painting, do a doodle or listen to a poem. Feedback from staff has shown that taking even a short break to do something creative has allowed them to take their mind elsewhere away from the stresses.
We are pleased to offer an exciting range of activities to help teams bond and unwind during their breaks.
