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.

Food to go...

  • 28 November — 22 December 2015 *on now

Everyone on your Christmas list can be ticked off with a visit to this year’s annual fundraiser exhibition at Project Ability. We celebrate the holiday season with sweet, savoury, classical and comforting artworks all to do with our love of food. We will be adorning the gallery with artworks from Project Ability artists from our Create, Aspire and ReConnect workshops, alongside submissions from artists outwith Project Ability.

Food has long been the subject matter for many a still life throughout the history of art. We make our mark on this tradition by celebrating food in our own style, offering visitors a vast array of artworks to make your mouth water. There will be paintings, drawings, prints, ceramics, sculpture and more for sale in our gallery from the 28th November to 22nd December, turning Project Ability into your one stop Christmas shop!

Food to go… is presented by Project Ability as an inclusive platform for artists with different lived experience to come together to celebrate their creativity and, in this case, their love of food. 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.
