Acknowledgement of the Sámi people

OCA acknowledges the Sámi as one people, and as the Indigenous people of the Fennoscandian region. On the land of this region, Sápmi, the Sámi people have lived since time immemorial, respectfully harvesting from nature by fishing, farming, hunting and following reindeer, amongst other activities.



During 2009 - 2012 and 2018 - 2019 OCA offered a 3-months residency programme for artists, independent curators, cultural producers or independent art critics at Capacete, Rio de Janeiro. The residency was a forum and interdisciplinary project operating in Rio de Janieiro that organised talks, seminars and workshops and connected the residents into the local context.
