Today marks to start of Learning Disability Week 2015, and Project Ability will take part in two events for the occasion.
On Wednesday 17 June, the Lighthouse will host SCLD’s free event ‘Women with Learning Disabilities: Equal and Healthy Lives’. This women-only event is a chance for women with learning disabilities to come together to talk about the barriers they face, to hear presentations and to discuss ways to have healthy lives and healthy relationships. Project Ability will provide a splash of colour for the day, with paintings by women artists from our Aspire programme.
The following day, a selection of works by Aspire artists will be exhibited in a one-off event in the Scottish Parliament, where Learning Disability organisations Project Ability and Indepen-Dance have been invited to present themselves to the Scottish MPs. Cameron Morgan and Jonathan McKinstry will be there to represent the artists.
