Afroinstitutionen x Oceanen: SPACES

Written words allow you to travel to mental and physical spaces from wherever you are. In the series SPACES Afroistitutionen and Oceanen invites visitors to explore the connection between narrative and physical spaces. What does it mean for different authors to create spaces narratively and how can we use the tools of fiction to reinvent the physical spaces of our daily lives? In this series Afroinstitutionen invites authors, poets and creatives to turn Oceanen into clusters of different spaces connecting literature, representation and art.

Welcome! The event is free and open for everyone.

About Afroinstitutionen:

Afroinstitutionen är en förening baserad i Göteborg som fungerar som en mötesplats för svarta personer*. Vårt mål är att stärka, läka och lyfta svarta personer, att skapa gemenskap och bygga community, att sprida kunskap, att bekämpa anti-svart rasism, och att hylla Svarthet i all dess mångfald. Vi vill fungera som en hub som kan stötta olika typer av projekt som drivs av medlemmar. Kontakta oss för att driva projekt via Afroinstitutionen, ta del av vårt nätverk och få olika typer av stöttning.

*Afrosvenskar, afrikansvenskar och svarta personer med bakgrund från den afrikanska kontinenten eller den afrikanska diasporan. Läs mer på www.afroinstitutionen.com.

SPACES is made possible with support from Statens Kulturråd.




The Cultural Center Oceanen is a Q-marked culturally historical building, which is challenging when it comes to accessibility. We do our best to have as many people as possible visit us. When visiting us with mobility aids the best-suited entrance is through the stage. This entrance is accessed via Gathenhielmska trädgården. The entrance is locked, please email us the day before your visit or the latest Friday at 16:00 if you are visiting us during the weekend. We have a wheelchair-accessible bathroom. Please note that flashing lights may occur during concerts and events. For questions regarding accessibility email Mia Herman at mia@oceanen.com.
