The Perception Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit founded by Suzy Khrom and Elizabeth Burton in Los Angeles, CA. Our mission is to serve our local community by creating connections between survivors of various forms of abuse, trauma, and mental illness with artists aimed at reducing the stigma of this collective plight, empowering those who have suffered from it, and providing a safe and encouraging space for both groups, as well as for the larger community.
This organization aims to support local artists by providing a platform to showcase work through events and exhibits. We devote our creative platform towards promoting mental health awareness, maximizing community partnerships, involvement in the local community, providing meaningful work experience, and above all encouraging a shift towards positive perspective.
Suzy's passion for artistic expression influenced the coordination of creative meetings which gave participants an opportunity to collaborate on artworks that promoted healing and self-realization. This drive and sense of organization culminated into co-founding The Perception Project.
An artist, and aspiring art conservator, Elizabeth is a kind soul that embraces the positive impact of creativity. Experience with trauma survivors motivates her to dedicate efforts towards inspiring and empowering people in need.
