WHAT MAKES MEMRIA DIFFERENT

ONE PLATFORM TO MANAGE EVERYTHING
Building a storytelling project with traditional tools is stressful. There are too many options and tools, and they do not always fit together.

Helping visitors feel connected is difficult. Memria halps optimize the experience for visitors (in person or virtual) by providing tools to ask community members to record stories, making them feel heard as they share experiences, wisdom, recollections, and feedback. Make the stories available for the public or integrate them into exhibits.
We often miss opportunities to learn from community members. Memria helps you to gain insight about visitor experience; Identify story themes, patterns, and personalities across multiple stories; identify synergies with programs and exhibits, and provide useful feedback. Built-in tools allow for collection of demographic and other information.
The hardest part of a story project is the "listening" side: who listens and why? Memria's tools are designed to facilitate the biggest challenge for all storytelling projects -- listening -- by providing tools and templates to make stories more listener-friendly, including maps, timelines, images, and data visualization.
HOW MEMRIA WORKS
MEMRIA uses the power of personal stories to help our partners further their missions and to strengthen community engagement. Our tools allow clients to easily collect, manage, and share first-person narratives and testimonials from people in their own voices.
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.
