New digital innovation project

Hijinx is working with Proper Design and Jonathan Dunn on an innovative project that will bring technology into the heart of the company, helping us to progress towards our vision of a world where it is commonplace to see and hear actors with learning disabilities on stage, screen and radio.

Supported by Nesta’s Digital Innovation Fund for the Arts in Wales, we are now exploring how the company can use digital technology in three areas:

  • to safely track the progress and development of the actors attending our Academy training courses across Wales.
  • to improve how we share information and communicate news internally with actors, staff and tutors.
  • to showcase and celebrate the work of our actors and create further opportunities for employment.

Work is currently under development, for updates on progress go to follow us on twitter and find us on Facebook.
