Project Ability are having a party!


Help us celebrate 2012 on Thursday 13 December for our BIG annual fundraising party complete with music by the Easy Orchestra, Project Ability pop-up shop and fabulous RAFFLE! 

There are wonderful prizes to be won including family tickets to Christmas panto Jack & the Beanstalk kindly donated by SECC and many more surprises.  All the money made will go towards our Xmas Pound Appeal!  This year we are pleased to be hosting the party in our home, the 3rd Floor workshop in Trongate 103 from 8pm ‘till late!

2012 has been magnificent and we have a lot to celebrate; including exciting exhibitions, artists’ talks, film projects and new programmes. 

Please join us for a Christmassy evening of music, dancing and festivities; every donation contributes directly to Project Ability’s original and innovative programme of visual art production and exhibitions.

We set out at the beginning of the year with an ambitious programme of visual art workshops, participatory programmes, residencies and master classes which put Project Ability together with professional practitioners, graduate volunteers, local audiences, community groups, disability networks, filmmakers and non-profit organisations. 

This year we received our first ever Arts Award programme for 14-25 year olds and established Art Matters – a brand new provision for young people aged 21-28 extending the Create programme upper age limit from 25 to 28.  Another new initiative Young Talent on Screen will equip young people with the skills and confidence to organise and run a Film Festival in 2013 and a major public event in 2014.

Also significant in 2012, Connect closed and re-emerged as ReConnect; a programme for artists in recovery from mental ill health with a focus on self-initiated artistic practice and looking towards an autonomous and sustainable future for the programme. 

In exhibitions, we hosted an inspiring exchange exhibition between Canada and Scotland which is the first in a series of forthcoming international partnerships.  We launched a significant social history project, Lennox Castle Stories in partnership with C-Change which resulted in a collection of photographs, art works, a publication and a website mapping the experiences of the castle’s ex-residents.

Meanwhile, two artists with learning disabilities embarked on an artist residency in the picturesque Welsh town of Llandrindod Wells.  To coincide with the 2012 Olympics, we presented Let the Games Begin Part 2; an alternative exhibition on the theme of sport, victory and success to coincide with the various festivals and cultural events happening around London 2012.
