Public Education and Awareness Award to Voyager Media Group for Sacred Spaces, a
documentary on Cincinnati's churches, temples, and mosques.
Sacred Spaces, a one-hour documentary about Cincinnatiís churches, temples, and mosques,
reveals how they came to be built, their role in local history, the beauty of their designs, and
their place in the community. The sanctuaries depicted reflect a diversity of religions and
denominations and portray cultural, social, and political trends in Greater Cincinnati from its
founding to the present. Sacred Spaces takes a chronological approach, combining interviews
of key historians, architects, and religious leaders with rare archival images and a soundtrack of
choral and cultural music. Taped in High Definition to showcase the full beauty, colors, and detail
of these magnificent places, Sacred Spaces premiered on Cincinnati Educational Television on
March 2, 2008, and has been aired repeatedly. Its audience is amplified by a website with a program
outline, profiles, and links; transcripts of interviews; and a long list of resources for further
study. Sacred Spaces was made possible through gifts and grants from Carl H. Lindner; the
Ohio Humanities Council; the Josephine S. Russell Charitable Trust; The Fine Arts Fund; GBBN
Architects; and the support of Cincinnati Educational Television and Voyager Media Group, a
nonprofit organization dedicated to creating high-quality public media projects about culture, art,
history, and science.
