Our 2023 calendar reflects the concept of change, which Project SAVE has experienced this past year. The 2023 calendar is a finely curated collection of photographs that highlights the breadth, depth, and power of Project SAVE’s vast archive. The images illuminate different periods and locations of transition. And each month is accompanied by poetic text inspired by the photographs.
The 2023 Calendar
Annual Artist and Researcher Residencies
Starting in fall 2022 Project SAVE will be hosting two artists and two researchers per year who will spend time in the archives and create an original work based on their engagement with the photographs.They will also hold public talks and workshops. This unique initiative will serve to significantly elevate Project SAVE’s profile and impact.
The residency can be sponsored each year and will carry the name of the sponsor for that year (or a name of their choosing).
Interactive Mapping and Audio for the Website
The Project SAVE site has recently been redesigned and enhanced. Since our focus is on the visual image, it is important that our site reflects the power, depth, and artistry of our collections. Now that the first phase is done, we are aiming to begin the second phase in the fall or winter. In that phase, our web developer and two archivists will be adding mapping and audio features. People will be able to hover on images and hear short audio clips about the photo. They will also be able to view maps that pinpoint where our collections come from around the world. This is not only important for sharing our vast collection of genocide and survivor photos; it is a cuttng edge way to engage with a broader demographic, especially young people.
This project can be named for the donor or in memory of loved ones.
