For the past eight weeks, a group of students from Glasgow School of Art has been meeting with a group of Project Ability artists, spending a day per week in the studios together, conversing and making. This pilot project has now come to an end, and the students & Project Ability artists met today for a feedback session and to see their work exhibited in our Project Space.
“It is refreshing to have this available to us, where there’s no inhibition, a freedom for the sake of making.”
“When you are put in the right place with good people, good things happen.”
“I am far more confident about 4th year.”
“It brought back the innocence of art.”
“The project has completely exceeded our expectations, the blend of our participants with a selected group of students from GSA, could not have come together more beautifully. Today we celebrated the work made, the friendships forged and talked about the importance of having opportunities such as this one. The process was simple, we brought together artists and gave them space to work, to communicate and collaborate and they all did just that.”
