About the project
Fly the Flag is a collaboration between arts organisations and human rights charities which celebrates and reminds us of the human rights we all share, in particular raising awareness of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights amongst young people and shining a light where human rights are violated.
This year, Fly the Flag is highlighting Article 20 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights – the right to protest.
Together with our project partners, we’re inviting young people across all nations of the UK to co-create work with leading theatre artists and associates around this theme.
Here in Wales, we’ll be working with young people aged 16 to 25 to explore the power of protest through performance, movement and music. There’ll also be the opportunity to take part in a Stand Up to Racism march.
All this work will be filmed and showcased in a celebration on Human Rights Day, 10 December.
Fly the Flag is co-produced by Fuel, the National Theatre, the National Theatre of Scotland, National Theatre Wales and The Mac, Belfast. The lead artist for the UK-wide project is Jenny Sealey, Artistic Director of Graeae Theatre and a champion of disability inclusion.
