Project Ability Gallery
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.

Scotland, the Land Beneath Our Feet
- 18 November — 23 December 2017 *on now
This year’s annual Christmas show takes a close look at the land we call home, Scotland! We’ve asked the artists working at Project Ability to think creatively about the idea of the landscape. Scotland is world reknowned for its wild beauty and nature. It is not concerned with being ‘user friendly’and makes no apologies for its wet, windy and wild climate. It is in many ways what keeps Scottish highlands and countryside so lush and green.
This year we celebrate the land beneath our feet. Each artist has chosen some piece of the Scottish landscape that they have connected with. For some it has evoked memories of childhood holidays, for others it is their regular walking trips or mountain hikes. We’ve got street scenes, monuments, scenic views of seaside towns… and some of Scotland’s most adorable and unique wildlife too!
Scotland: The Land Beneath Our Feet is an inclusive exhibition for artists with different lived experience and ability to come together to celebrate diversity, creativity and the Scottish landscape. The holiday season is a great time of year to show your support for the work we do by admiring and/or purchasing truly unique artworks for your friends and family. We support the artistic adventures and aspirations of children and young people with disabilities, people with mental ill-health and people with learning disabilities.
