In August 2015, Atlantika members Mark Isaac and Gabriela Bulisova worked in the only penal colony in Ukraine for women ages 14-20. Titled “Memoria”, the project focused on the important recollections of the women who are held there. For the incarcerated women, memories of other times and places are particularly important to their identity. In fact, the interviews reveal that memories need not be solely focused on the past, but can be an inspiration to take action for the future.
