To mark the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as part of Fly The Flag week, Sadler’s Wells hosts a panel debate exploring the relationship between art and human rights.

Artists and human rights campaigners reflect on the role of art in addressing our shared humanity, providing insight from their own experiences, work and expertise. Why, and how, does art bear witness, shine a light on or celebrate our human rights? And what is the value and impact of this, in society and in our everyday lives?

Speakers include Jasmin Vardimon, choreographer and artistic director of Jasmin Vardimon Company, author and prominent human rights barrister Philippe Sands QC, and actor, writer and "temporary suffragette" Kate Willoughby.
