The UNMISSABLES Project - The Arts helping to find your loved one

Discussion in 'Australia: Missing & Unidentified' started by MULDER, Apr 9, 2017.

    The Unmissables is a free online tool designed to help the families of long term missing people reignite the search for their loved ones by making them unmissable.

    You can help make a missing person unmissable by donating a wall of your home or business for their portrait
    to appear on.

    What do you miss when someone isn't there, what makes them unmissable? Is it their smell? Their touch? The sound of their voice? Or maybe it's the way they laugh?
    For Tej Chitnis' loved ones, they miss everything about him.
    A new campaign has been launched by the Missing Persons Advocacy Network – Unmissables – to help jog the memories of the public, reigniting the search for a missing person through art.
    The campaign aims to match the families of long-term missing persons with artists and writers, who create a piece of art that might result in vital information about the missing.

    Founder of the network, , Loren O'Keeffe, hopes the website will help families who may be losing hope.

    "One of the main challenges is maintaining the public's attention for a longer-term case because once the initial media buzz dies down, it is near impossible for families to rejuvenate their campaign," said Ms O'Keeffe.

    One of Tej's closest friends, Dylan Snowden, still cannot believe his friend is gone.

    "The mural is just exactly him in every way. He was very sensitive, into basketball and music. When he disappeared, a whole part of who I was just vanished."

    I cannot do art on this scale anymore...used to work for an artist doing murals and such on site in hotels and casinos...often on scaffolding.
    It is impossible now with my ripped up body.
    But....you never know...

    This is an absolutely *brilliant* idea... I can see a lot of people/businesses in my neck of the woods getting right behind it.

    Owen's design is great, so glad he's a part of this.

    Missing But Unmissable – New Awareness Campaign Launched By Grey Australia
    21st April 2017

    Read More at: http://www.bandt.com.au/advertising...ew-awareness-campaign-launched-grey-australia
    A campaign to make missing people unmissable has been launched by the Missing Persons Advocacy Network (MPAN).
    The campaign follows 2016’s Too short stories campaign, and features a re-imagining of traditional missing persons’ posters into vibrant stories and images that reflect the person that family and friends know.

    Loren O’Keeffe, founder and director of MPAN said “The Unmissables is very important work that I’m immensely proud of.
    It’s the perfect vehicle to make these often forgotten faces, unmissable.”

    Acclaimed author Benjamin Law and Melbourne street artist Heesco were paired with the parents of missing Burwood East man, Tej Chitnis.
    The launch of this campaign, with a public mural for Tej at the Queen Victoria Market, marks the first anniversary of his disappearance.

    The campaign’s focal point is an online hub developed in partnership with WPP partner, The White Agency – theunmissables.com.au –
    which features a stunning series of reimagined missing persons posters, where cold statistics are replaced with stories, and grainy photographs are replaced with works of art.
    The campaign calls for new contributors to donate their talents and a ‘call for walls’ request for gallery or building owners to donate their walls to feature the artworks.

    Claudia McInerney, Managing Director, Grey Melbourne said “This next campaign for MPAN is the culmination of a lot of dedicated people pouring all their talents and efforts into a
    worthy cause that’s underpinned by a fantastic creative idea. We’re proud to have played a part in helping Loren raise awareness of these long term missing Australians on behalf of the families that are so deeply affected.”

    Anthony Moss, Executive Creative Director, Grey Melbourne said “Collaborating with other creative communities on a project so important, has been a pleasure and a real labour of love.
    And while usually we want campaign results to feature in the millions, just one new lead that comes as a result of this work will make it all worthwhile.”

    Grey Group Australia is part of WPP AUNZ, Australasia’s leading marketing content and communications group.
