Kennedy Center ArtsEdge
A learner-centered approach to incorporating the arts in education.
In anticipation of the opening of the National 9/11 Memorial in New York in Sept 2011, Blenderbox worked with the Foundation to re-architect and design the website.
Previously, the focus of the site was fundraising, updating site visitors on the Memorial construction progress, and telling the story of the events of September 11, 2001.
With the Memorial set to open, the site has shifted focus to represent the Memorial as a destination and to provide visitors to the Memorial with all the information they need to plan a visit. Additionally, the site serves to allow virtual visitors who will experience the Memorial online, to have an informative and engaging experience. The new site architecture reflects the shift in focus and allows users to get to the information they need, quickly and intuitively.
Fundraising is still an ongoing goal so the 9/11 Memorial can continue to support maintenance of the Memorial and also development of the 9/11 Museum, which is due to open in Sept 2012. To that end, the site is set up with a robust donations workflow and an online store for associated merchandise.
Additionally, with the prospect of millions of visitors to the Memorial, the Foundation is committed to providing an educational component so that educators, both formal and informal, will have the materials to support them as students visit and learn about the events of 9/11.
