Overview

“THE MAGIC CHAIR” is a multi-year, international transmedia storytelling project that empowers individuals with disabilities, educators, and families to tell their own stories.

Guided by the principle of “nothing about us without us,” the project launches with a moving documentary film made with and about the students of the St. Declan’s School in Dublin, Ireland. The project then expands outwards with an interactive website including documentary mini-films, “Now I Understand” web experiences and apps designed to promote understanding of the challenges experienced by individuals living with disabilities, knowledge exchanges, and blogs about disability rights issues and education.
