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 2018 - 2019 OCA offered a 1-month residency programme for a curator at The Mumbai Art Room and their curatorial lab of the Contemporary Arts Trust in Mumbai. The programme provided mentorship and the first three weeks went to prepare and install an exhibition and one week post-opening to host public tours or talks in the exhibition. The mentorship started two months before the residency.
