Word night

Event: 26 / 10 / 2019
Location: TENT

Silence is the theme of Woordnacht 2019. The silence of the taboo. The silence of religion and nature. The silence of writers who rarely make themselves heard. The silence of listening. But there is also attention for the silence of not being able to hear, listen or speak. Hearing or non-hearing, speaking or non-speaking: visitors to Woordnacht 2019 will experience silence and sound as they are not used to.

Last year, the third edition of Woordnacht was celebrated at various locations in the center. More than 50 famous authors, including Arthur Japin, AFTh. van der Heijden, Joke van Leeuwen, Kluun and the Dutch poet Ester Naomi Perquin are part of the program. This year TENT is participating as a location. exact information will follow later.
