Who are we?

The Anti-boredom Campaign comes from scientist-turned-artist Dr Lizzie Burns who describes herself as a ‘Creative Specialist’ together with Agent of Wonder, Dr Matthew McFall. Together they use wonder, curiosity, interest, making and creating to engage and inspire people of all ages.

We are keen to encourage awareness of boredom as a suffering in hospital and that offering resources, and opportunities could really help people during difficult times. We need imagination not medication to help.

Time is precious especially in hospital so let there be opportunities for joy.

With thanks to academic, writer, doctor and broadcaster Professor Alice Roberts for supporting this initiative and for her kind encouragement:

“The Anti-boredom Campaign is amazing – a truly wonderful, positive thing”
