Bojana will begin her PhD in autumn 2019.
Her research will look at how the development of professional identities by means of theatre production affects the well-being and community participation of people with learning disabilities.
This research project rests on the thesis that the production of professional theatre can lead to participants gaining an improved sense of well-being by gaining a professional/expert identity. Thus, the basic research question is how the process of creating professional theatre could affect the well-being of people with LD. The research will be undertaken in collaboration with participating partners in Torbay, Devon.
