The George W. Bush Presidential Center on the campus of Southern Methodist University opened its doors to the public on May 1, 2013, and The Freedom Collection’s archive of interviews with democracy activists will be featured in the museum exhibits. This groundbreaking initiative is part of The Bush Institute’s efforts to promote the principles of human liberty around the world.

Through in-depth HD television interviews, the dynamic website chronicles the stories of those who have been instrumental in the advancement of human freedom. Interview subjects include Vaclav Havel, the late Czech president, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, president of Liberia, and the Dalai Lama.

The Collection’s most recent addition is Vytautas Landsbergis who led the nonviolent movement to free Lithuania from 50 years of Soviet occupation.

“All of us at Grace Creek Media are extremely grateful for the opportunity to play a role in bringing the Freedom Collection to life,” said Grace Creek Media Vice President John Sorensen.

Grace Creek Media helped the Bush Institute design, develop and launch the Freedom Collection website, and continues to support the project with video production, editing and content management.
