Community management: SEADS

From 2015 to 2020, Tanéa collaborated closely with Angelo Vermeulen and the SEADS Network. As the Speaking Engagement and Community Coordinator for SEADS during that period, Tanéa served as the main point of contact for talks, workshops, and collaborations. She took the initiative to facilitate corporate partnerships aimed at exploring co-creation concepts and alternative leadership within business contexts. As a Community Coordinator, Tanéa proactively nurtured and expanded the SEADS collective. She ensured consistent communication, fostered connections among members, and facilitated collaborative efforts. Within the SEADS collective, Tanéa also actively contributed as a member, participating in various (art) projects such as Biomodd and Ēngines of Ēternity.

SEADS (Space Ecologies Art and Design) is a transdisciplinary and cross-cultural collective of artists, scientists, engineers and activists. Its members come from all corners of the world, from places such as the Philippines, Malaysia, Kosovo, Belgium and the US. SEADS is actively engaged in deconstructing dominant paradigms about the future and develops alternative models through a combination of critical inquiry and hands-on experimentation.

Over the past years, the collective has created a range of paradigm-shifting projects in which different domains such as visual art, neuroscience, ecology and space technology are blended in unique ways. SEADS employs its own signature methodology which is centered around community building, co-creation and bottom-up design. SEADS believes that these approaches are key to unlocking collective intelligence, a prerequisite for generating more diversified and inclusive futures. Furthermore, SEADS also embraces a hacking and open-source ethos, with the goal to engage as many people as possible in the activities and ideas that they initiate.

Since 2009, the collective has co-created more than 40 art projects, together with local communities in Europe, the Americas, Asia and the Pacific. Some of their most well-known community art projects are Biomodd and Seeker. In these projects they have personally collaborated with hundreds of participants and actively engaged with diverse international audiences.
