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.
