A project of The Things We Did Next, created by Alex Kelly, Lawrence Harvey and David Pledger
What if you could hear a broadcast from the future? The Polykeepers of Time are Archivists of the Future who have data-scraped Time in 2029 and discovered key interviews with Indigenous landcare practitioners. The voices of Yuin man Bruce Pascoe, Yorta Yorta woman Kathryn Coff, Barkindji woman Zena Cumpston, Canadian journalist Naomi Klein and Lutruwita-based traditional fire practitioners Jason Smith and Danny Gardner are accompanied by field recordings of plantings, bird life and cultural burning workshops.
This ‘speaker orchestra’ was conceived by Castlemaine-based filmmaker and activist Alex Kelly, sound designer Lawrence Harvey and sound engineers Dave Turner and Nicole Halford.
