The Keeper Project is a live public art project where artists work in a temporary role as observer, collector, maker and storyteller within the community

The Keepers are archaeologists of stories

There will be a series of Coolum based artists and creative practitioners working on The Keeper Project from July 2021, continuing their investigations into 2022. The artists come from a range of practices including visual arts, music, spoken word and inter-disciplinary practice

 

One at a time each of the artists takes the role of The Keeper - the observer, the explorer, the maker before passing the role on

 

Each artist takes the role of The Keeper for three weeks. During this time they have a chosen ritual that they will repeat, occurring at a particular place, at a particular time. The communities of people experiencing the ritual are likely to change

 

The Keepers will be logging their journey like any good explorer. You can read their account on the website or visit their office at Coolum Library. You can also follow the keepers on Instagram @creativespaces.sc


The project was developed in collaboration with Field Theory and piloted in Coolum in November 2019 with four Sunshine Coast based artists and a number of community groups

If you are a Sunshine Coast based creative practitioner, keep an eye out for opportunities to be a part of The Keeper Project going forward
