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.
