Keiskamma Art Project, Hamburg, Eastern Cape

The Keiskamma Art Project is based in Hamburg on the Sunshine Coast, Eastern Cape. It is a collaborative community-owned art outlet and workshop that enjoys the participation of over 100 local artists and crafters in the Keiskamma, Hamburg area.

The Keiskamma Art Project was started in 2000 by a local artist, and has grown from strength to strength each year, providing much needed income and a creative outlet to many in the disadvantaged coastal communities in and around the Hamburg area.

In the years since the project was founded and registered as a Trust, there have been numerous International showings of the works produced, as well as a number of commissions, both domestic and International.

There are now five individual art studios, each one specialising in a particular craft – from beading to ceramics – offering high quality hand-made African crafts and products that come with the bonus of having contributed directly to community upliftment.

Not only are the crafts true mementos of Africa, but they are an extra reason to visit the tiny town of Hamburg and delight in the pristine nature, beauty and friendly locals you might otherwise have passed by.
