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.

The Revenge of the Bubblegums

  • 22 April — 2 May 2015 *on now

Rehan Yousef attends Project Ability’s Aspire programme where he makes highly energetic figurative works in his own unique style of surface variety and oddness of image. These line drawings often emerge from earlier layers of colour and are made up of continuous lines detouring around the page. For the first time, Yousef has narrated these works with stories about their starting points, the characters and stories within; these additional narratives offer an exclusive insight into his distinctive process.

Suitable for

  • Any age

Collage by Ewan Malloy

Collages

  • 6 — 16 May 2015

Ewan Malloy attends Project Ability’s Aspire programme where he industriously creates layered collages from whatever he has to hand; cardboard, paper, paint, photocopies, discarded drawings and other offcuts. Malloy compiles the detritus of a visual art workshop into organised images. He creates impressive visual and tactile material, using loose and impulsive methods, that represent individual moments of creativity.

Total Drama Island

  • 20 — 30 May 2015

Harriet Campbell attends Project Ability’s Art Matters programme where she makes works about everything Total Drama Island; a Canadian animated television series set in a fictional reality show following the competition of 22 teenagers at an imaginary island located in Ontario. Campbell’s paintings depict the characters as kissing couples fulfilling the artist’s own romantic visions for the characters and plotline.
