Clwstwr Project Researcher
This is a brilliant opportunity to join the dynamic team at Hijinx, one of the UK’s leading inclusive theatre makers and providers of performance training for actors with learning disabilities and/or autism.
Hijinx are looking for a driven, committed person to join them on a part-time, temporary basis to support their successful Clwstwr research project.
Through research and early practical application, award-winning theatre company Hijinx, supported by production company Triongl, will explore how screen content could be made in an authentically inclusive way for learning disabled and/or autistic actors, and what new processes might be needed to create inclusive storytelling.
Running alongside the early development of Hijinx’s first feature film being normal (working title), the Clwstwr project aims to incite significant, long-lasting change by encouraging the screen industries to work more inclusively. The Clwstwr Project Researcher role is integral to this project’s early stages.
This role will:
• Develop Hijinx’s inclusive practices and networks through deeper engagement with other inclusive companies and companies working in an inclusive way
• Support the early stages of the creation of a new revenue stream for Hijinx, through a final ‘product’ based upon the Clwstwr findings
• Build Hijinx’s reputation in film and TV through pioneering work around developing inclusive practices that can be used as a bedrock in new ventures across the screen industries
• Increase employment opportunities for our highly trained Hijinx actors through greater exposure to the wider industry via this project
