Objectives

Our mission is to pioneer, produce and promote professional and participatory opportunities in the arts and creative industries for LD/A people. Hijinx create exhilarating and subversive theatre that is highly acclaimed across the UK, Europe and internationally, where artists with learning disabilities and/or autism are involved every step of the way in the making and performing of their stories.

 

Activities

Hijinx Academies provide the only professional performance training course in Wales for learning disabled and/or autistic actors and we offer opportunities that you won’t find anywhere else. We run five Academies across Wales, with over 60 Actors in training. Alongside, we have a growing film programme and a dynamic community and outreach offer (PAWB). Through Hijinx Actors we promote our actors to the wider arts and creative industries, as well and offering employment directly in our award-winning communications training.
