Hanna Elise Seinen

Communications & Engagement Coordinator

Hanna Elise (she/they) is a multi-disciplinary creator who grew up and currently lives on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish, Ts’uubaa-asatx, WSANEC, Quw’utsun people and Hul’qumi’num treaty group. Hanna’s relationship to creativity began with visual art, whereafter she migrated to sound, movement, and language by finding self-expression through music, dance, theatre, and poetry.

Most recently, she has been collaborating with Collective Space Cowichan on a variety of multimedia projects at the intersections of climate resilience, community building, decolonization, and permaculture. Her personal commitments to decolonization include learning to grow food, making plant medicine, protecting ancient old growth ecosystems, supporting BIPOC artists and land defenders, living in relationship to the seasons, and healing her own cultural and ancestral relationships. You may find one of her sacred grief guidebooks, “A Traveller’s Guide to Grief,” atop a mountain, inside a tree, or perhaps nestled in a river valley.

Hanna is grateful and excited to be working alongside Pacific Peoples’ Partnership and with Indigenous and Pacific Islander communities. She believes that the arts are a powerful way to facilitate cross-cultural knowledge sharing and is passionate about connecting more people with why this work is so vital to our collective healing and survival.
