Shane Koyczan - Video

Country:

Eligibility:

My name is Andres Mendez,  I work with a film production company, Fine Light Entertainment, in Los Angeles. 

We are currently looking for an artist (art form can vary) willing to create a unique piece centered around the topic of suicide. We aim to help those suffering from mental health issue and whose despair has led them to consider such extreme actions.

The artist’s creative process will be filmed and the imagery will play over a powerful spoken word piece by Shane Koyczan (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sa1iS1MqUy4&t=489s)

We will be working alongside mental health charities and suicide hotlines to raise as much awareness as possible and help those in need. The piece will also serve to highlight the benefits of art as a form of therapy. 

This will be a pro bono collaboration for a worthy cause. There is no compensation.

If interested please include an example or two of your existing artwork.

“Shifting Perspectives on Trauma” Art Exhibition

Share

Eligibility:

ABOUT THE PERCEPTION PROJECT

The Perception Project is a Los Angeles based art-for-healing non-profit organization devoted to providing survivors of trauma (muses) with services that take on creative forms as expressive outlets and serve the local community. Between an artist/survivor collaboration, the muse provides a personal story, and the artist creates a masterpiece showcasing the muse's strength and inner beauty. These works are showcased through public art exhibitions designed to promote mental-health awareness, then gifted to the muses as a symbol of their strength. 

 

DESCRIPTION

About the Project:

The volunteer artist will

a) Receive a written or audio story based upon the experiences of a trauma survivor (muse)

OR

b) Meet a trauma survivor (muse) in person or via Skype, to listen to the muse’s experiences with the presence of a therapist or mental health professional

and use it as inspiration to create an artwork meant to empower and inject positivity to the muse. Artwork is donated to the muse after the end of the exhibition. Acceptable mediums are canvas, wood panels, paper, digital prints, mixed media, 2D visual art, small-sized sculpture/3D art, and photography. A gift card or an art supplies goodie bag will be allocated to each artist (or artist team) to cover partial cost of materials. Artist travel fees are not covered.

Art Goals:

Works of art are created then gifted to the muses (survivors) as a symbol of their internal strength to continue thriving in life. The Perception Project devotes its creative platform towards promoting mental health awareness, maximizing community partnerships, local community involvement, providing meaningful work experience, and above all encouraging a shift towards positive perspective.

Site:

The art exhibition will be held at a private gallery in Los Angeles, CA. The event will be open to the public.

 

ELIGIBILITY

All artists who are passionate about making a positive difference in the community are encouraged to apply. Application eligibility is not restricted to geographic location.
