Ai Weiwei's new flag will be central to an international, week-long series of events marking the 70th anniversary of the Declaration of Human Rights
Fly the Flag is a new project marking the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In addition to the UK, the project will include Mexico, Iceland, Germany, Holland, Denmark, Greece and the USA. In London, Sadler’s Wells Theatre will host a public talk that will see artists and human rights professionals explore the role of the arts in promoting reflection and debate on human rights.
