Graeae Fly the Flag for Human Rights

By Graeae Team, June, 24 2019

To mark the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, artist Ai Weiwei has created a flag to celebrate universal human rights.

Arts organisations and human rights charities across the country are inviting members of the public 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.

To mark this occasion, Graeae are re-releasing their Acts of Memory film, paying tribute to the 30 declarations within the Human Rights Act.

Watch the film (with audio description and captioning):
