We are delighted to announce a new corporate partnership with The Co-operative Group Scotland who sponsoring the children and young people’s film programme.
We look forward to a mutually beneficial partnership and continuing our work, for the third year in a row, with The Co-operative Group Scotland whom we jointly host ‘The Co-operative Young Film Makers in Scotland’.
The sponsorship is an organic development of a longstanding partnership and the continued development of The Co-operative Young Film-Makers Festival in Scotland, where Project Ability administers and produces the event sharing contacts and knowledge.
Project Ability would like to thank all the friends and supporters who generously donated over £2000 in just 4 months (December 2009 to March 2010) towards our 25 year campaign. This funding will support our 2010 exhibition programme ensuring our exhibitions continue to delight our audience. “fantastic show”...”Wow!! keep on showing us your work”...”Oh my goodness – beautiful, exciting, expressive, inspiring work.”
This campaign has now closed but we are, of course, continuing to accept gifts and donations.
Two years ago we launched the ‘100 Club Draw’ and over one hundred people took part, helping to raise around £1500 for the ‘Big Move appeal’. Thank you, we really value your support.
We discovered that many of you use the ‘100 Club Draw’ as a way to donate a regular amount to Project Ability each month, in order to support our charity. Moreover, many of the winners insist that we keep the prize money, which is extremely generous however, creates additional administrative costs. Taking all of this into account, we have decided that the December 2009 draw will be the last ‘100 Club Draw’, however, we hope you can continue to support us.
If you already have a 100 club standing order with us and wish to continue supporting us, there is no need to do anything
Your ongoing support is gratefully appreciated,
Elisabeth Gibson, Executive Artistic Director

17 artists with autism spectrum conditions and Asperger syndrome have been invited to contribute works exploring their relationships with architectural landscapes, real or imaginary. The exhibition features the work of artists from six different countries, all with unique backgrounds, and techniques vary from painting, drawing and sculpture through to sound installation, and site-specific commissions.
The invited artists have approached the topic in divergent ways; some works objectively mirror selected environments, whilst others centre on the exploration of abstract ideas and subjective interpretations of architectural landscapes. The exhibition juxtaposes these different responses, thereby developing unexpected relationships and narratives between the works.
An artist talk will take place where some of the exhibiting artists will be discussing their practice and their work in Myscape. A publication will be launched which documents the exhibition and comprises of critical essays.
First Thursday: Project Ability & Trongate 103, exhibition open late, Thursday 4 February, 5 - 9pm
