Project Ability is a developmental visual arts organisation that grew out of a yearlong project to mark the International Year of Disabled People in 1981. Since then we have been promoting equality of access to the arts by supporting people of all ages and abilities to take part in artistic projects, exhibitions and events.
Each week we provide artistic support, training and access to professional resources to around three hundred people. We work with children and adults with learning or developmental disabilities, people with mental ill health, and others who find it difficult to access mainstream activities.
Project Ability is based in Trongate 103, and has a fully accessible gallery and workshop spaces in Glasgow’s city centre. Our workshops take place both in Trongate 103, and in our extensive outreach programme in schools and community venues throughout Glasgow and the surrounding local authorities.

Cloud - A Solo Exhibition by Henrik Pätzke
- 5 April — 24 May 2014 *on now
In his first solo exhibition in the UK, Henrik Pätzke will create an expansive installation in Project Ability’s gallery and deliver a talk event about his practice on Saturday 5 April 1-2pm.
Henrik Pätzke has been working with Inuti, a Stockholm based organsiation, since 1998 and is now a full-time member of Inuti 2, established in 2003 as a satellite studio to support artistically talented individuals with high-functioning autism, Asperger syndrome.
Pätzke is an artist most well-known for his tent installations and large fabric costume works that are designed and stitched together by the artist, often floated and suspended in the air displaying a closed quality and sculptural effect.
The exhibition will explore various ideas around constructed spaces and of autistic withdrawal behind emotional, defensive, architectural gestures with the tent and cloud acting as motifs for both transience and indications of human presence.
Opening Friday 4 April 6-8pm
Festival Opening times 4-21 April Mon-Wed & Fri-Sat 10am-5pm, Thu 10am-8pm, Sun 12-5pm
Continues until 24 May Tues-Sat 10-5pm
