Reminder: Volunteering Opportunities

We have new opportunities for volunteering across our programmes, starting in January 2014.

We are looking for graduate artists with experience in ceramics or printmaking to support our ‘Aspire’ participants in the making of their artwork. Volunteers should be able to commit to at least one 2 hour workshop per week for a series of 8 weeks.  Workshops take place twice a day Monday to Friday.

We also want to recruit six artists for our ‘Create’ Saturday workshop programme.

There are:
Two opportunities from 10 am to 12:30pm to volunteer with our youngest artists aged 5 – 12 years
Two opportunities from 1pm to 4pm to support young people aged 12 - 21 years.
Two opportunities to support our 21 – 28 year old artists, in our studio provision, ‘Art Matters’ from 4pm – 6pm. 

These volunteer positions will run from Saturday 25st January until Saturday 15th March, with the possibility of an extension of a further block of 8 workshops.

‘The ReSearch Room’

2014 sees the start of an exciting new opportunity for artists to be involved with our organisation.  ‘The ReSearch Room’ provides space and support to artists who have an interest in developing their practice through research and delivery in partnership with the artists at Project Ability.  The ‘ReSearch’ programme will give artists of all experiences and abilities, the opportunity to work and learn from each other in a series of creative conversations.

At this stage, we are looking for artists who would like to take part in ‘ReSearch’ to submit their ideas of how they would approach developing a shared practice, working in a reciprocal partnership with an artist with different life experiences to themselves.

All of these volunteering positions are based at our workshop on the 3rd floor of Trongate 103. If you have any queries regarding these positions, please feel free to contact Volunteers Co-ordinator, Tracy Gorman. If you are interested in volunteering in one of these roles please complete the application form and return it to Tracy Gorman at
