Odia Socio-Cultural Association Netherlands (OSCAN) was started in 2017, by a group of like-minded individuals aiming to connect people in the Netherlands who called Odisha their home. Odisha is a lovely state on the eastern coast of India. It is renowned all over the world for the warmth of its people, as a spiritual center, for its classical and folk dances, its proud history of maritime adventurers, unique cuisine, its wealth of flora and fauna. Odisha is India’s best-kept secret!

We invite you to explore, participate and celebrate the joy of being an Odiya.
