Fly The Flag

10 Dec 2020

Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 25:

“Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control. 

Motherhood and childhood are entitled to special care and assistance. All children, whether born in or out of wedlock, shall enjoy the same social protection.”


To mark the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 2019, artist Ai Weiwei created a flag to celebrate universal human rights. 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 came together to celebrate that human rights are for everyone, every day.

Fuel is lead producer of this 5 year project inviting people to Fly The Flag for human rights, alongside arts organisations and human rights charities from right across the UK. This year, on 10 December, newly commissioned films created by spoken word artists and poets will be released, all in response to Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Full details, including partners and commissioned artists to be announced in November on www.fueltheatre.com and www.flytheflag.org.uk
