Cardiff's Hijinx Theatre: Crowd-funding 'added extra'

With budgets tight or being cut and arts groups facing a difficult financial climate, could crowd-funding be the answer?

Hijinx Theatre for people with learning disabilities is crowd-funding for a revival of its popular production, Beneath The Streets which they need to raise match funding towards an Arts Council for Wales grant.

People who donate will get rewards of acknowledgement to an involvement in the production.

Jacqui Onions, administrator of Hijinx Theatre, said she would think of crowd-funding again if the project was right.

"It's a good way of making connections as well, because when you pledge you have to have contact to arrange the reward so we get to know our supporters better."
