Where are they?
Where are their faces and their voices?*

Where are our detainees and disappeared?

“Detainees and Disappeared” is a new project that retraces people’s memory throughout the years of revolution and war, by documenting their artistic and cultural expressions on what could be considered an important common cause for the majority of Syrians today and, certainly, among the most paramount humanitarian, political and legal files in the Syrian case, which  is currently being translated through prosecutions and lawsuits in countries of asylum against perpetrators of human rights violations in Syria, especially the Syrian regime and the de-facto forces.

We launch the project with more than 700 works from different categories, directly linked to the “Detainees and Disappeared” theme and updated on a regular basis.

“Detainees and Disappeared” is the sixth project by Creative Memory of the Syrian Revolution, and is supported by: The Swiss Embassy – Department of Peace and Human Rights, Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung, Institut Français – Syria, and CCFD-Terre Solidaire.

The first phase of the project was launched on 16 December 2021.
