Aussies urged to show their power

Mental health advocates are looking to create a community movement of people inspiring each other through difficult times

Multi-platinum artist Timomatic has been recruited for a unique mental health initiative that’s encouraging Australians to share a moment of positivity using the universal language of dance.                                     

Unstoppable.org is a new campaign focused on building resilience and hope in the community amid the backdrop of COVID isolation and lockdowns.

It is the brainchild of Lifeline ACT CEO Carrie-Ann Leeson and Kulture Break CEO Francis Owusu, who approached Timomatic to write an uplifting song to serve as an anthem for the movement.

The music video for this song – titled Power – has just been released, featuring a series of dance moves for people to learn.

Australians can check out a tutorial to “learn the dance steps to show your Power”, or else can create their own moves and share their experience on social media using the #Unstoppableorg hashtag.

To help build the movement, participants are encouraged to include “I/we am/are Unstoppable because…” in their posts, which will be shared as part of the initiative’s community hub. 

Owusu said this was about encouraging others to feel inspired and spread joy throughout the world.

“Unstoppable.org is a simple initiative that people can be part of in order to feel connected and communicate with those around them,” Owusu said.

“Whether young or old, it’s important to unite our community and voice a message of positivity and hope, particularly through the joyful, inclusive medium of dance.”

Leeson added that she hoped Unstoppable.org could be a way for people to seize a moment of self-doubt and replace it with resilience even when things get difficult. 

“This is really what this whole initiative is about, uplifting all Australians and helping them spread that unstoppable fire inside of them,” Leeson said.

For Timomatic, the song serves to highlight the power people have to do whatever they want to do and push themselves to the next level. 

He said Unstoppable.org was an expression of the mindset – to uplift your spirit and share that power with others around you.

“It’s as simple as taking part in a few dance moves to make a huge impact,” Timomatic said.

“We all need to feel unstoppable, particularly during tough times, and spread that message so it doesn’t get lost in the noise of everyday life.”
