The Memory Project

Remembering Kalman

Capturing the creative energy of a Holocaust remembrance workshop

The Memory Project brings participants inside the creative process and into the memories of a Holocaust victim. It began with artist Roz Jacobs and her mother, Anna, sharing their story of Anna’s younger brother, Kalman. It’s developed into an internationally-recognized project addressing universal themes of loss, love and resilience.

The Memory Project includes traveling museum exhibits, educational programs and documentary films. All components needed to be represented on the website and managed with a database solution.

The Memory Project required a modern, artistic look. We created a design that introduced a custom, interactive portrait gallery, where visitors can view artwork created by workshop participants from around the world.

We developed a database where workshop leaders could upload the digital versions of participants artwork to the website for internal review, management and display.

The Memory Project website required a second language solution for their growing Polish community of users. Counterspace helped the organization navigate the options for implementing multi-lingual capabilities within a limited budget.

After launch, counterspace continued to consult with The Memory Project on long-term maintenance options. We helped the team to explore the benefits of internal vs. external site maintenance to ensure ongoing and optimal site performance
