We are a non-profit organization active in Spain and Greece. Together with our volunteers, we work to support the refugee & migrant community. All our work is carried out in close collaboration with our local and international partners. OCC started as a volunteer-led initiative and over the last years has grown into a relatively large organization, still mainly powered by volunteers and a community-led approach where we not only work for migrants and refugees but also closely together. Open Cultural Center (OCC) was established in 2016 at the height of the refugee crisis in Europe. Refugees and international volunteers at Idomeni refugee camp worked together to give classes and create a safe environment for children and adults, to learn and take part in cultural activities. OCC quickly became an important resource in the camp and organised events such as music and art workshops, open mic nights, performances and more.
