The Special Rights Forum brings together parents, carers, educators, activists and artists to resist disability discrimination in the education system.

The Special Rights booklet, published by the Serpentine Galleries in 2018, shares the stories of how children labelled with ‘special educational needs and disabilities’ are being failed, ignored and excluded by the education system. A year on from the publication launch, the Special Rights Forum brings together people who care.

In the face of ongoing funding cuts, we ask: How might adopting a special rights approach improve experiences for children? How best do we come together to create a network of support and solidarity?

Special Rights is a long term project by artists Emma McGarry and Adam J B Walker working with children, their parents and staff from the Portman Early Childhood Centre in North Westminster. Special Rights is part of Changing Play, an ongoing partnership between the Serpentine and the Portman Early Childhood Centre in Westminster which brings together artists, children, families and educators to critically reconsider early years education and care.
