AIDS Memorial Tile Wall Project
This is a very ambitious and successful project created in Boournemouth, Dorset, UK. This project encourages family members of people who have died of AIDS to create their own unique memorial tiles to keep the spirit of their loved ones alive.
It is also a great way to get the community involved in a project that brings education on the subject matter and can be a support network for anyone effected. It can be a constant reminder of the impact AIDS has on its victims and their families and further reminds us why research is important and crucial to finding cures and answers to this disease. This is definitely a very powerful use of memorial tiles.

Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial
On April 19th 1995, the Murrah Federal building in Oklahoma was bombed in the early hours of the morning. It’s estimated around 600 people either died or suffered serious injuries in this horrible attack, so the memorial was made to remember the victims, survivors and brave rescuers.
In this case, children were encouraged to send in their hand painted memorial tiles to create a wall of remembrance tiles. It is an emotional and beautiful piece of history that has taught future generations about this event and the tiles will be able to keep bringing people in to learn and remember everyone involved in this tragedy.
