Presenting Syrian civil society’s media productions

International Commission on Missing Persons

The International Commission on Missing Persons had planned to stage an exhibition of the films, posters, brochures and other media products produced by Syrian Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) at an international conference. However, once the Covid-19 pandemic hit, they were forced to move the display online

In a very rapid turnaround project, Surface Impression was able to process the CSO’s media products and arrange them into virtual exhibition panels, complete with both English and Arabic captions. Titled “In Their Absence”, the exhibition showcases some of the amazing work produced by organizations in and around Syria to help people find their missing loved ones, or process the grief and anxiety associated with missing persons.
