Collect, manage, analyze, and share stories, testimonials and first-person autobiographical experiences at a scale otherwise impossible to manage manually.
We work with truth community libraries, oral history projects, nonprofit organizations, philanthropies, and others committed to listening to each other.
Request and Record
Clients create a Project and invite participants via email invite, social media, or a direct link, such as a "Tell Your Story" button on their website. Participants (called Storytellers) record audio or write, preview, and submit their story and, if they choose, upload relevant photographs. Participants can choose to not display their name.
Curate and Analyze
Clients review stories and testimonials, and use dashboard tools to create transcripts, analyze materials, edit audio, create podcasts and compilations, and create archives. If they choose to share the stories, they can publish them on a "public stories" page. Stories can be archived.
Share and Distribute
Post stories directly to Facebook and Twitter or use the story URL in an email newsletter. A "mini player" can be embedded into other content such as a blog post or website, or download audio clips and compile them into a podcast. Create distributable materials for external or internal audiences.

""Both story projects sponsored by the Keene Valley (NY) Library, one local, one national, are based on Memria. We could not be happier with the platform, technical service, and people!"

OurStoryBridge: Connecting the Past and the Present
"We used Memria to set up both a Story-Telling booth and a separate Story-Listening booth as integral parts of a traveling exhibit. The technology was easy, the set-up was very inexpensive and quick, and the results were fantastic. It enhanced the exhibit and encouraged visitors to share their art and their comments. This is a great tool for small and low-budget museums and exhibits like ours!”

Everyone wants to collect and use feedback, for a wide range of reasons.
Memria helps our partners use feedback stories strategically and efficiently.
Libraries, Historical Societies, and Archives
Libraries and Historical Societies are key repositories of local history and collective memory. Memria helps them engage community members to become part of a living archive.
Truth and Reconciliation Initiatives
Memria helps truth and reconciliation projects to explore and understand the past by collecting stories and testimonials.
Social justice organizations increasingly need to reflect the voices and experiences of their communities in order to achieve societal change.
Museums and Exhibits
Museums and exhibits can create story-collecting stations and story-listening stations to increase community engagement and enhance visitor experience.
Educators use Memria to record and share the voices of their students and their communities, making the learning experience more real.
Alumni Associations can use Memria to send out a call for stories across the alumni network and collect hundreds or even thousands of audio recorded or written stories with the click of a button.
