A Story Well Told

Dates: 05 Oct 2012 - 20 Oct 2012
Preview: Thursday 4th October 6-8pm
Location: Project Ability Gallery
Admission: Free

Project Ability are pleased to present a group exhibition by artists from Leverndale Hospital, Rowanbank Clinic and Blythswood House; the result of a two year pilot project of art in health care settings with the NHSGGC Directorate of Forensic Mental Health and Learning Disabilities Occupational Therapy Services. The project is funded by the Lankelly Chase Foundation and NHS GGC learning disability services.  The work began in April 2011 and this stage concludes in 2013.

A story well told exhibits the project’s wider development and emphasises the role of art as an integrated care and development pathway. For the artists involved, it is a chance for them to explore their own consideration of identity, reflect on their surroundings and interests out with institutional structures.

The project, based within three seperate healthcare environments, is a behind-the-scenes production exercise offering the artists an opportunity to realise works that have an unfolding narrative potential and an enduring power that goes beyond the therapeutic process.

This exhibition is about communication and emphasises that artistic practice is potentially educative, transformative, expressive, emotionally exploratory, participative, challenging and progressive at an individual and social level.
