On Human Rights Day and every day Fly The Flag with @we_flytheflag @aiww @fueltheatre
This year Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is being highlighted:
“Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control. Motherhood and childhood are entitled to special care and assistance. All children, whether born in or out of wedlock, shall enjoy the same social protection.”
It has been a challenging year for many if not all, let’s ensure we all come together and highlight Human Rights for All.
As part of Fly the Flag, 32 amazing poets have responded to Article 25 - writing a poem that reflects Article 25, you can listen to them all here:
Art Breath is proud to be flying the flag created by Ai Weiwei. It is a flag that symbolises human rights for all, showcasing footprints that represents the struggles that refugees have to endure, such as walking barefoot in the snow to survive. Many organisations, charities, people, institutions are flying the flag. Read the 30 articles and pass them on and unite for a fairer world with more empathy and care.
This year in response to Fly The Flag highlighting Article 25, we created an artwork entitled 'poetry in bloom' : encompassing all of the 32 poets names and their poem titles on flowers blooming.
Human Rights for all, poetry, poets, creativity in full bloom, when people come together. Community at its best.
