One-off Projects

One-off Projects

We have a long history of setting up and managing community arts projects for people with learning disabilities (previously part of our Outreach programme) and all the experience and pearls of wisdom which comes from it. Working with individual practitioners and organisations, we have set up all sorts of activities, such as a series of drama or music workshops, projects leading to community performances or making a short film.

"Working as a Community Focus Co-ordinator, I was given a wonderful opportunity to work in partnership with Hijinx Theatre Company, in preparation for the Ely Festival. A series of after school workshops were devised by workshop leaders and pupils from all the secondary schools in the Ely area, both mainstream and special education needs. This culminated into a devised production called 'Purely Lovely.'
The project inspired both workshop leaders and pupils alike, working in harmony many new friends were made. Pupils from the main stream schools commented that the project had given them a better understanding of special educational needs and disability. In turn, two of the workshop leaders were given the opportunity to overcome their disabilities and put their teaching skills into practice. We need more of these inspiring projects!"
Marion Llewellyn, Michaelston Community College

Whilst most projects are one-off, some lead to an ongoing relationship.

"We have really enjoyed working in partnership with Hijinx. The community projects we embarked upon have been innovative, stimulating and above all good fun. There has been a real sense of achievement by all who participate and lead within these projects."
Matthew Gough, Rhondda Cynon Taff Day Services
