A showcase for Syrian civil societies

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. The COVID-19 pandemic forced them online, and the exhibition In Their Absence was the result.

In a very rapid turnaround project, Surface Impression processed the CSOs’ media products and arranged them into virtual exhibition panels, complete with English and Arabic captions. In Their Absence showcases some of the amazing work produced by organizations in Syria and other countries, to help people find their missing loved ones, or to process the grief and anxiety associated with missing persons.
