Project Ability creates opportunities through inclusive art for all. Since 1984, we’ve been supporting, celebrating and platforming diversity within the contemporary visual arts sector. Based in Glasgow’s award winning Trongate 103, we provide a welcoming arts community for people with learning disabilities and mental ill-health. We provide the space and expertise to allow them to express themselves, build confidence and achieve their potential.

Our three core workshops are:

ReConnect: An open studio for adults with experience of mental ill-health.

Aspire: A visual arts programme for adults with learning disabilities.

Create: An arts programme for children and young people with disabilities.

We also host a year-round calendar of projects, masterclasses and exhibitions to reach out and connect people and communities across Scotland. Our gallery and shop are essential spaces used to promote the artists and their work. Our exhibitions and unique shop items delight audiences from around the world as well as providing sales and publicity opportunities for the artists.

Through art, we believe we can improve the lives and wellbeing of people with disabilities and experience of mental ill-health. Our strong and vibrant community of artists learn skills, connect, and build confidence whilst attending Project Ability.
