Geen Daden Maar Woorden Festival (freely translated: Words Speak Louder Than Actions) took place on Saturday the 24th and Sunday the 25th of September 2016 and presented literature in combination with other art disciplines. The festival showed us literary talents, (inter)national poets and spoken word artists, singer-songwriters, film and (music)theatre. Special attention was given to (re)discovering internationally renowned spoken word artists and poets. The visitor was able to compose his own route through the locations. There was also an English route available.
