De Balie at 150 Psalms.
How are Psalms that are centuries old able to inspire us today to think about complex modern issues like the global refugee crisis or the uncertain future of Europe? De Balie will organize two lectures of great international speakers who will place the humanitary themes of the psalms in the context of our modern society on the 150 Psalms weekend premier in Utrecht
