Fly The Flag 2021 Film

In 2021 Fly The Flag saw a UK-wide collaboration between arts organisations and human rights charities culminating in a film broadcast by Sky Arts.

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 created a large-scale engagement project.  

Groups of teenagers in a post-Brexit United Kingdom gave 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 created work with a unique and powerful perspective through the use of movement, spoken word and film. 

 The young participants explored freedom of expression, creating work which was filmed and broadcast by Sky Arts on 10th December 2021.

Alongside this schools and arts organisations across the UK took part in engagement activities, promoting Human Rights and Article 19, culminating in a celebration of this work on 10th December, Human Rights Day. 

You can watch the film via Sky TV On Demand.
