Collect, manage, analyze, and share testimonials and first-person autobiographical experiences at a scale otherwise impossible to manage manually.
We work with truth commissions, community libraries, oral history projects, nonprofit organizations, philanthropies, and others committed to listening to their constituents or members.
Request and Record
Clients create a Project and invite participants via email invite, social media, or a direct link. 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 and publish select feedback stories to their public project page. Clients can get transcripts for selected audio recordings.
Share and Distribute
Post feedback 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.

""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.
Companies use Memria to capture the voices of their customers or evaluate programs in a way that is more authentic and revealing than traditional surveys and more efficient than focus groups.
Social justice organizations increasingly need to reflect the voices and experiences of their communities in order to achieve societal change.
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.
Political organizations use Memria to hear directly from constituents in their own voices on key platform issues. Clips from stories can be integrated into existing media campaigns and outreach.
Educators use Memria to record and share the voices of their students and their communities, making the learning experience more real.
Libraries 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.
