• Case Study: Feedback Summit

    A very “meta” problem of getting feedback about the feedback movement

  • THE CHALLENGE

    The Feedback Labs team was looking for a way to collect feedback and experiences from the attendees of their annual Feedback Summit. They sought a solution that:

    • had more nuance and more of a “human element” than a survey would provide 
    • would allow them to collect audio recordings and photos from participants, both during and after the event
    • would enable easy sharing and distribution of the audio feedback to the community post-summit

    THE SOLUTION

    Memria provided the following tools to help FBL collect and distribute their “feedback stories”:

    • Web-based platform for collecting, reviewing and sharing stories
    • Story Booth setup at the conference 
    • “Roving Reporter” Chromebook that was used to collect stories “interview-style” at the reception and during breaks by FBL staff
    • Story widget that the FBL team embedded into the post-summit blog post
    • Audio clips extracted from stories, that the FBL team edited into a podcast

  • Case Study: I Defend Rights

    Collecting and sharing stories of Human Rights Defenders around the world, leading up to the the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

  • THE CHALLENGE

    I Defend Rights, a global human rights project, needed a way to create and share a global archive of hundreds of stories from people all over the world, in multiple languages, in a fairly short period of time. They sought a solution that:

    • was available in English, Spanish and French 
    • was easy enough to use by people who have a computer but are not necessarily regular users of technology
    • provided a dashboard that allowed project managers to easily review, publish and share a large number of stories

    THE SOLUTION

    Memria provided the following tools to help I Defend Rights collect and distribute their stories of human rights defenders:

    • Web-based platform for collecting, reviewing and sharing stories
    • A dedicated project page where the collection of stories in each language could be viewed (see English, Spanish, and French stories)
    • Story Booth setup at the Human Rights Defenders World Summit in Paris
    • “Roving Reporter” Chromebook that was used to collect stories “interview-style” throughout the summit
    • Story widget that the I Defend Rights team could use to embed published stories on their own website

    RESULTS

    Results of our work collecting and sharing stories with I Defend Rights. 328 storytellers, 149 published stories in English, French and Spanish. Stories were shared through an exhibition, a website, and listening stations set up at the Human Rights Defenders World Summit
