Since 2015 Tanéa has been working closely with Angelo Vermeulen and the SEADS Network. As the Speaking Engagement and Community Coordinator for SEADS (2015-2020), Tanéa was the contact person for talks, workshops and collaborations. She also mediated corporate partnerships to explore concepts of co-creation and alternative leadership in business settings. As a Community Coordinator Tanéa actively grew and supported the SEADS collective. She made sure people stayed updated, connected with each other, and she facilitated collaboration.
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.
