Everyone@trongate103

Everyone was an exciting project, operated by engage Scotland with funding from the National Lottery through Creative Scotland, which aimed at exploring and supporting continued development of access and disability equality in galleries and visual arts venues in Scotland.

Everyone@trongate103 was one of four national pilot projects supported through this scheme. Working in partnership with PAMIS, Glasgow Print Studio, Project Ability, GMAC, Street Level and Glasgow Life, the aim of the project was to explore ways to engage and increase access for people with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD) through our exhibition programmes.

PAMIS were invited to provide a Disabilities Awareness training day to staff, artists and people with an interest in this area. This was supported by FLIP, who outlined changes to legislation and the sessions were very successful in increasing awareness of Equalities Act 2010 . This gave us a structure to begin an Equalities Audit focussing on Disabilities within the Gallery, workshop and retail gallery and we now have a current draft Action Plan in place.

We held a series of public events where a range of practices and approaches were shared. Invited artists across all disciplines with a professional interest in PMLD shared their own practice and experiences. Programmed to coincide with First Thursdays at Trongate 103 a series of public talks were held.
o 3 short residencies ran throughout April 2011 - October 2011 involving people with profound and multiple disabilities, their families and supporters exploring how they experience the different exhibitions and workshop spaces encountered within Trongate 103 and how the spaces and organisations relate to each other.

Drama Artist, Clare Hume, Glasgow based dance company Indepen-dance and visual artist John Shankie all worked with different groups exploring exhibitions on show in the galleries and spaces throughout the T103 building. The residencies culminated in a piece of choreography, performance reflecting the group's passage and exploration of the building and 2 public artist talks.

A final residency ran throughout Jan- Feb 2012, a representative from each T103 organisation, a photographer, printmaker, artist and filmmaker worked together with an invited group from PAMIS over a 5 week period and the workshops took place in the galleries, workshops and public spaces in Trongate 103 and involved film, photography, printmaking, papermaking, music, drawing and painting.

The group created such a wealth of work during the practical sessions that an external venue has been found for an exhibition to showcase the work and project to a wider audience.
