Fly the Flag

Arts organisations and human rights charities invite you to Fly the Flag for human rights on 24 - 30 June 2019. From the Highlands of Scotland to the coast of Cornwall via cities, towns and villages across the UK, in galleries and theatres, shopping centres and offices, schools and libraries, both physically and online, people will come together to celebrate that human rights are for everyone, every day. - Fly the Flag 70

Fly The Flag is an ambitious collaboration between arts organisations and human rights charities, marking the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We invited artist and activist Ai Weiwei to design a flag as a symbol for universal human rights, which was unveiled at our launch on the anniversary date, 10 December 2018. We would love you to join us and be part of this.

The project was born out of the realisation that today many people don’t know what their human rights are, and we risk forgetting them at our peril. So far, more than 100 organisations have signed up to support the project. As arts and cultural organisations our work is an embodiment of Article 27 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, ‘Everyone has the right freely to participate in the cultural life of the community, to enjoy the arts…’

We really hope you’ll join us to make this a powerful UK-wide moment of hope, togetherness and creativity. - Fuel Theatre
