Fighting for our Rights

Students from St Philip’s have been working hard with Kingston Centre for Independent Living (KCIL) and Nurses from Kingston University on the Fighting for our Rights project. They had several drama workshops working together and forming friendships, which then culminated in a final production which was filmed by Chocolate Films Production Company and shown at Kingston Theatre.

The ‘Fighting for our Rights’ project ran from November 2016 to March 2018, and focused on gathering some of these amazing stories through oral history interviews, 23 were conducted with prominent members from Kingston’s disability rights movement, including Ann Macfarlane and Baroness Jane Campbell to create a permanent record and inspire a new generation. Through a generous grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, we can ensure that this history is captured and not lost.

Jen, manager of the project said “It is so wonderful to now see these amazing stories be used in a creative way, and shared with students from St Philip’s.

Neil Mears said “I am so proud of the students, seeing them build friendships with the nurses and watching them grow as performers has been truly amazing!”

Students develop very high levels of positive behaviour and feel extremely safe. They are very considerate, very respectful and caring of others and highly positive about learning.
