Fly The Flag continues in 2021, a UK-wide collaboration between arts organisations and human rights charities. Working in partnership with Eden Court Highlands, The MAC, Sadler’s Wells and Wales Millennium Centre, in association with Belfast International Arts Festival, choreographer Oona Doherty – O.D Works LTD and a team of associate artists will lead a large-scale engagement project.
Groups of teenagers in a post-Brexit United Kingdom give voice to their thoughts, their fears, their hopes and their dreams. Taking a look at some of the UK’s big questions as well as some everyday ones, the teenagers will create work with a unique and powerful perspective through the use of movement, spoken word and film.
The young participants will explore freedom of expression, creating work which will be filmed and broadcast by Sky Arts. Alongside this schools and arts organisations across the UK will take part in engagement activities, promoting Human Rights and Article 19, culminating in a celebration of this work on 10th December, Human Rights Day.
