onePulse Foundation Wants Your Ideas for the Permanent Memorial

You can help shape the way the Pulse memorial and museum honors the lives that were so barbarically taken on that tragic night in Orlando. Lesbian community, let your voices be heard. You only have until August 31, so here’s the deal.

onePULSE Foundation has launched an Ideas Generator to start a national conversation about and request ideas for the design of the permanent memorial and museum honoring the 49 lives taken in the Pulse nightclub tragedy.

The purpose of the Ideas Generator is to inform the onePULSE Foundation on how to best combine memory, education, inspiration, hope and respect. It is an open call to all to present ideas related to architecture, landscape, urbanism and artistic intervention, culminating in the construction of the Pulse Memorial and Museum.

Any ideas – rough or more polished – are welcome and can be submitted electronically via a PDF file containing no more than four pages. The Ideas Generator can be found at Submissions will be accepted from July 17, 2018 – August 31, 2018.

“onePULSE Foundation is proud to take this next step in our goal to develop a permanent memorial and museum,” said onePULSE Foundation Board member Hilary Lewis.  “For the past two years we have felt the support and love of this community as we strive to honor our angels, survivors, and first responders. We are eager to receive design suggestions and ideas that may create a sanctuary of love, hope and healing.”

The Foundation’s Design and Construction Committee, led by Vicki Berman, will review each submission to gain a better understanding of what the national community would like to see in the future memorial and museum.

“The Design and Construction Committee looks forward to hearing from designers and community members alike to create a space that will permanently stand to honor victims and represent the importance of actively working to end hate,” said Committee Chair Vicki Berman.
