What better way to celebrate the impact of the AiR (Artists in Residence) project than by creating another piece of art!

Oxfordshire film-maker Emma Spellman (Oojamaflick Films) has helped us to create a beautiful film, which highlights some of the amazing work of our artists and brings to the screen the impact art has on personal health and wellbeing.

Oxford Health Charity has been delighted to support the development of the AiR project over the past year, a new strand of work that has been delivered by Oxford Health Arts Partnership to place professional artists on community hospital wards alongside clinical staff.

The external evaluation report for the project highlighted the many benefits the project had for patients and ward staff, and is available here.

This project was funded through Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust and NHS Charities Together with local council and League of Friends support for specific elements.
