Contest Brief

We are working on a project to create a visual history of the remaining small churches located in Canada's prairie regions (Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba). The churches we are currently focused on are those built in the early and middle 1900's by the Ukrainian, Polish and Russian immigrants that came to Canada to set up homesteads and begin a new life. Due to demographic changes and rural depopulation, many of these beautiful buildings can no longer be supported and will likely disappear within the next decade. We are planning to obtain photographs and videos of as many as we can and preserve these images for future generations.

We are seeking assistance for a creative and memorable Name for the project and the website that we will build to host and display these images. I have attached several typical images that will be part of the project / website. You can submit as many proposed names as you want.

Thanks,
Russell

    Considering the purpose of the project is to preserve the memories of these churches, I find it curious that no one has used the words "memories", "reflections", "recollection" "remembrance", etc.

      I did it in #4 . However, not in an adequate context I suppose.

    There are some really great ideas / words being suggested. The words that I like are in the 4 & 5 star lists. We are close to the "magic" phrase that I am looking for, but not quite there yet! Please keep brainstorming. Thanks.

    Some very good suggestions ... close, but not yet there! The purpose of the project is to capture and save photos/images/videos of these rural prairie churches before they disappear. The title should also lend itself to a short, rememberable domain name. Keep the suggestions coming. Thanks.

    The other image that comes to mind is that all of these churches are richly decorated with religious icons. So some ideas about the lonely or sad icons may also be a possibility. Keep the suggestions coming.

    Here are a couple of suggestions that may tweak your imagination. All of these churches have bells. These bells ring only once a year or not at all. So something related to the silenced bells may work.

    Thanks for the submissions so far. There are many good names, but none that seem ideal so far. A couple of comments. "Sanctuaries" cannot be used as this the the name of a similar project being conduct by the University of Alberta. "Canada" is not suitable as this project is limited to the 3 prairie provinces in western Canada only.
