Homeland Heartache

01-11-2017 t/m 15-11-2017

For the third time NBE is proud to present: Homeland Heartache. A programme that features a special group of musicians and composers, (former) asylum seekers and refugees from all over the world. It is a story of sadness and hope for a better future. A special project that, for the NBE, depicts the self-evidence of the connecting role music has in bringing people together, no matter where they come from or where they end up.
In collaboration with the Toverfluit Foundation, De Vrolijkheid Foundation and Move Forward.
