Work with Hijinx

Job Vacancy- Freelance Sharing Together Project Support .

In response to the Black Lives Matters movement and We Shall Not Be Removed campaign; we are building a network of organisations and individuals to debate, research and respond to the specific challenges that exist at the intersection of learning disability / neurodivergence, people who experience racism and arts engagement.

Through this work we aim to develop sustainable and impactful approaches to remove barriers to the arts in Wales for learning disabled and neurodiverse people, by organising networking events promoting support, access, and inclusion across the arts.

 

The Project

In response to the Black Live Matter movement and We Shall Not Be Removed campaign, we want to find ways to address systemic inequality, stepping away from one off project work, and establishing longer term changes and interventions that result in a more inclusive and open cultural sector.

We acknowledge that we lack the knowledge and lived experience to lead changes such as these on our own, we need the help of learning disabled and neurodivergent people who have experience racism and marginalisation, to enable us to move forward with integrity and to work better for all.
