This installation was made in response to the Foundling Hospital school uniforms and young people’s experiences of being labelled as a ‘child in care’ at school.

Created by care leavers from Westminster and Ealing with artist Emma Middleton, shirt labels record sentences that teachers and parents said to them during their school life. You can see the results of this project in our Introductory Gallery.
