• Keep an Eye in Dutch
• Keep an Eye Academy
You’re a passionate artist, musician, photographer, designer, filmmaker or creative entrepreneur in the making. Perhaps you're still studying or at the start of your creative career, which is very exciting! There is just one thing: maybe you don’t know what steps to take next. We all know how difficult it can be to start a successful career in the arts. As there is more than one way to take to the stage, publish your first photo book, or have your artworks exhibited in a gallery, together with leading academies, we will organize masterclasses throughout the country. Keep an Eye on our agenda for more information!
• 'Maker zoekt Maker'
Keep an Eye is a very active foundation and likes to develop its own initiatives. Initiatives that have not (yet) been made and which therefore make a nice addition to the range of cultural courses and festivals.
Keep an Eye has had a passion for music from the start. We started with jazz and later expanded with classical music and even later with musical cabaret talent. This passion is also reflected in a few of our newest initiatives, such as Maker Zoekt Maker. Via this online platform we act as matchmakers and try to connect young professional artists from different art disciplines to create great new projects! Whether it’s a musician looking for a filmer for a music video or a photographer looking for a costume designer – everything is possible! Take a look at our website for more information: www.makerzoektmaker.nl
• 'Nieuwe Makers'
We proudly present our brand new collaboration with Festival Cement within the framework of New Makers! Every year in March, Festival Cement launches a nine-day bombardment of exciting performances. At various locations in 's-Hertogenbosch, audience and professionals alike cast their eyes on a new generation of performing artists.
You will discover young makers, their themes and new forms and get alternative proposals for the future. In addition, there is plenty of room for the public, makers and professionals to meet, talk to each other and immerse themselves in the extensive context programme.
The cooperation between Keep an Eye and Festival Cement focuses on De Werfplaats - an experimental and meeting space where a loose coalition of five makers who do not know each other yet comes together. Directors, actors, writers, choreographers, composers, dancers and other (performing) artists live and work together in Den Bosch during the entire period. Every day, a different maker takes the lead and introduces the group to his/her own working methods.
It is a unique place where makers can exchange across disciplines and without production pressure. This provides room for mutual inspiration, broad development, discovery and cross-over with other disciplines in the form of an exchange between the Netherlands and Flanders. In addition, the workspace is a potential starting point for a long-term conversation between the maker and the festival, making the workspace one of the ways in which makers eventually find a development, production or presentation spot at Cement.
• The Keep an Eye BLOK'S projects
We will give part of the budget a new purpose: Keep an Eye finds it important that young talent, even in these Corona times, is supported. By Keep an Eye itself or by others. And about those others: we are thinking of 'colleague foundations' in the cultural field. Without restrictions to the art disciplines they support.
A hole in the budget, but a positive one
Nobody could have foreseen this crisis. Neither could Keep an Eye, of course. We based the last budgets on a normal cultural season and made plenty of plans in consultation with our partners. Not so, no normal cultural seasons. As a result, the partners made less use of the funds we made available. Now we don't want to say that we had money left over as a result; we spent less than we had anticipated. So a positive gap in the budget.
