Osso – Associação Cultural is a collective of artists from different areas: Music, Dance, Visual Arts, Literature, Film and Performance. The cultural association was established with the aim of developing a continuous activity, whether practical or theoretical, under a notion of interdisciplinary artistic sharing within regional, national and international contexts.
It aims to develop a broad programming project articulating different areas in terms of creation and dissemination of artistic and academic research, resulting in both periodic public presentations for the community of final works as well as works in process.
Intends to be a meeting point between artists and audience, actively dialoguing with the community, through workshops, research laboratories, training, conferences, readings and any form of reflective dialogue involving, in addition to a creative community, a critical community.
