Oxford Home to Open Doors for Community and Invite them to Exhibition Set Up By Residents

An Oxford home will be opening its doors to the public as part of the Oxfordshire Arts Week 2023.

MHA Brookfield will be showcasing the artistic talents of its residents by hosting a live exhibition.

There will be a display of some of the wonderful artwork residents have done in the past as well as a live activity.

There could also be an opportunity for visitors to see the amazing seaside mural, which includes the painting of staff members in various roles found at a seaside.

The home will be open to the public on the 16th,17th, 23rd and 24th of May from 11am to 1pm.

Victoria Davidson, activity coordinator said: “The residents at MHA Brookfield love art and are always excited when we decide to do something creative.

“A lot of the work we do is communal, and it allows residents to disappear into a different world.

“A lot of the credit goes to Jane, our chaplain in making sure we became a part of the Oxfordshire Arts Week.

“The purpose of opening our doors to the public is to attract visitors and allow them to see the talent our residents have.

“We also want to attract potential volunteers who can support us making sure we can continue to provide the wonderful activities we do at Brookfield.

“Personally, I have been part of the Oxfordshire Arts Week before, but it’s the first time I am doing this as part of the home, and I am really excited.

“We want to raise awareness of the wonderful work that happens in a care home and educate the community on the different things we do here.”
