About

Project Ability will end the year with a bang! We are holding an event not to be missed onSaturday 13 December, 6pm-9pm: our Christmas Fundraising Auction.

For two weeks, beginning on the Saturday 29th November, we will exhibit the works of established and emerging Glasgow based artists alongside works by artists who attend our workshops.
There has been a lot of discussion lately about Outsider Art, what it means to be an Outsider Artist?  This exhibition aims to blur the lines between what is considered ‘Insider’ and ‘Outsider’ Art.  Each piece of work donated will be on sale in a silent auction, with astarting price of £30 as a nod to our 30 years of existence.

Members of the public will be invited to bid on pieces of work they like without knowing who the artist is, thus rendering Outsider or Insider Art labels irrelevant. We will also publicise the artists’ names next to their work once the event is over, both on our website and social networking platforms. We will welcome online bids on Thursday 11 December, 9am-12am. 

We have had an amazing response from the artists we have contacted, and are extremely thankful to everybody who donated a piece. All the money raised will go to our ReConnect programme for adults with lived experience of mental ill health and will help us provide more opportunities and a rich programme of workshops, exhibitions and events to further realise and support the role of the arts in mental ill health recovery.
