The Young Coneys Fly The Flag

Posted on July 12th, 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. And in response to the Fly The Flag initiative, the Young Coneys have lent their voices by creating their own unique kites to celebrate this special anniversary.

In workshops with Director Toby Peach and Designer Kirsty Harris, the Young Coneys learnt about their human rights and chose the articles they felt a connection to. Next they put their own twist on flying the flag, by creating and flying their own kites. See it for yourself in our video:

The Young Coneys are already planning their next big adventure, a card game about Fake News. We’re currently crowdfunding to bring this brilliant project to life, and we need you to make it happen!

You can help (and get a copy) by backing the project, before our fundraising deadline of 30 July. But you can also support just as much by telling people about the campaign, so please give us a shout out and help spread the word. Visit our Kickstarter to find out more.

We are so grateful to everyone who has already backed and shared – thank you.
