Nextdoors is a Silence Centre. Occupants of Jonker Frans and the members of the CC want to bring a Lightsculpture there of the German artist Leo Lebendig. The sculpture combines the symbols of all religions and the "Happy Man" without religion. The sculpture is called "Human Soul". We invite people from The Hague and also participants from URI Cooperation Circles and other Interfaith organizations in The Netherlands to the presentation.
