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.

INFINITE PSYCHIC LOVE EXPLOSION!
- 20 January — 14 February 2015 *on now
For his first solo exhibition in Project Ability’s gallery, transcendental noise artist Lea Cummings will present a suite of drawings, video and installation; devices for which the artist aims to channel the universal energy field. This new work charts a year-long studio project throughout 2014 supported by Unlimited to explore the spiritual aspects of physical reality, ritual performance and the role of human beings within the universe. Cummings presents the development of an experience that transports audiences into a mystical, magical place outside daily reality.
Lea Cummings works across a wide range of media, including sound, performance, painting, computer animation, film and collage. The themes that connect his work relate to distortion, noise, time, archetypes, symbolism and the subliminal. Lea is interested in humans as the creators of reality on every level. His work expresses alterations of perception, and the opening of channels to deeper levels of experience; escaping the prison of five-sense reality and breaking the control of consciousness from deliberate external deception.
