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.

- 2 — 30 June 2018 *on now
Project Ability is pleased to present an exhibition of work from artists represented by the Polysemie Gallery in Marseille.
In early 2017 we were contacted by François Vertadier, managing director of the Polysémie Gallery in Marseille, with an exciting proposition. François invited us to exhibit with them during the “le printemps de l‘art contemporain” in the spring of 2018. In exchange we invited the Polysémie Gallery to Project Ability. This cultural exchange of art introduces a wider audience to both sets of artists. We are delighted to be working with the Polysémie Gallery, and through this new partnership we are excited to present this intriguing and unique body of work.
Exhibiting artists: David Abisror, Philippe Azema, Davide Cicolani, Davood Koochaki, Dominique Liccia, Izabella Ortiz, Evelyne Postic, Maurizio Zappon.
Opening reception: Thursday 07 June, 6pm - 8pm.
