BookWorx is a creative team bonding activity where teams build and decorate bookshelves. After a team brainstorming session, roles are assigned and teams begin to design, create and build a bookcase.

Half the team are responsible for producing the elaborately themed mural that forms the backdrop of the bookshelf. The other half turn the shelves into a work of art by attending a decoupage workshop and then applying the techniques. Once complete each team does a short presentation explaining the meaning behind their artwork before donating them to a local organisation in need.

Learning Outcomes

BookWorx creates awareness of the importance of resources in education. How all of us can do simple yet powerful things to help others. Through the power of collective giving participants uplifted in this creative shared experience.

Corporate Social Responsibility Outcomes

Groups can also collect books to ensure that the bookselves are full at the time of donation and can continue to keep them updated over time, creating lasting results & connections.

We deliberately chose this activity to focus our people on the joy of giving. And as it was a tactile activity people enjoyed doing something out of the ordinary. People were really pleased that their efforts went to a great cause.
