This short video explores the transformative experiences had by students at the St. Declan's School in Dublin, Ireland. Our project further explores what makes St. Declan's School so special and aims to share its methods and ethos with the greater world so that more children can benefit from the work being done at the school.

"St. Declan's and the MAGIC CHAIR" is one element of a multi-year, international transmedia storytelling project called "THE MAGIC CHAIR" 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 then expands outwards with an interactive website including documentary mini-films, “Now I Understand” games and apps designed to help players empathize with the struggles of individuals living with disabilities, knowledge exchanges, and blogs about disability rights and education.
