Oceanen is run for artists and those who enjoy and appreciate culture. Our main goal is to create the right conditions for a rich cultural life where cultural workers can practice their craft, develop their artistic practices and meet an audience.

The association works as an infrastructure for the members and tenants of the house, who are all creatives in their field. Furthermore, we are a partner for numerous other creators both locally, nationally, and internationally. The building currently houses around fifty artists whose movements are promoted by a space where the free forms and permissive structures of culture are seen as a prerequisite for the vitality of art.

Among the members and organizations in the house we can find Clandestino Institute and World Dance Company with participants ranging from 4 to 80 years old.With international and intercultural focus, they present high-quality courses, talks, concerts and discussions, performances, and theatrical meetings are presented with expertise and breadth of genres and forms of expression.
