This grant is aimed at supporting the participation of Norwegian artists and artists living and working in Norway, when they are invited to take part in projects abroad. The grant fosters visibility for Norwegian and Sámi visual art abroad, to promote innovative artistic investigations, and to facilitate a creative dialogue and collaboration in the context of contemporary cultural practice.

  • Jury members can be both art professionals and/or active artists, and at least one member must be an active artist.

Other factors:

  • The composition of the OCA jury should strive for age, gender, geographic and cultural diversity. This must be assessed for the individual jury and over time compared to OCA ‘s previous juries.

OCA’s director presents candidates for OCA’s jury to the OCA board for final approval.

A three-year agreement is entered into with each jury member.

The announcement of OCA’s jury members will be published at oca.no.
