art tiles
Tiles for Transition was an Art Therapy initiative that engaged approximately 1100 people at St.Josephs West 5th hospital including patients, staff and the Hamilton community. Each person who created a tile had to opportunity to donate the artwork back to the hospital for display. 33 framed works with curated placement around the hospital are on permanent display.

“I have to say that Laura Bromwich is a remarkable young woman who did an
outstanding job of clearly showing why art therapy is an adjunct therapy that we
should consider in our program. Through the Tiles for Transition Project I
worked extremely close with Laura and I saw transformational change in so many
patients and in myself. We are excited to have Laura join our team and I know
she will help us develop this role not only on our program but in the hospital
as a whole thereby hopefully increasing the capacity for others to follow.”
