  • Mission statement

    Project Ability delivers a year round programme of art workshops,training opportunities and exhibitions from our brand new, fully accessible premises in Trongate 103 - a centre for creativity and the arts.

    Since 1984 we have been supporting people to discover and develop their artistic talents, enabling children and adults to express themselves, gain confidence and learn new skills.

    Our gallery is a unique showcase for contemporary work by artists with disabilities and/or mental health issues from the UK and overseas.

    We aim to change the public’s perceptions of people with disabilities and/or mental health issues and to help create a more equal society where artists with disabilities are recognised and valued for their original talent and take their place alongside the wider arts community.

    We support people to discover their artistic expression, develop their artistic practice and achieve their creative potential.
