Franz Seachel is a South-Asian settler residing on the unceded and traditional Coast-Salish lands of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh), and šxʷməθkʷəy̓əmaɁɬ təməxʷ (Musqueam) nations. She is a writer, (spoken word) poet, organizer, workshop facilitator and multidisciplinary artist. Franz has a B.A. in Creative Writing from Kwantlen Polytechnic University and is the Founder/ Executive Director of Enable: Arts Society, a nonprofit dedicated to supporting community-based and collaborative art projects by emerging and/or marginalized voices. Additionally, she is a member of Her Tribal Roots and a founding member of Maza Arts Collective. Her work has been featured at numerous events and festivals, including Eastside Pride, Voices of Today, Word Vancouver, and Surrey Muses. Franz is a creator of space. She believes in the connection of art. She believes art makes living bearable and is doing her best to put more colour into the world. She means this both in the sense of brightening up the mundane with creation, as well as in her mission to uplift the truths of marginalized bodies. She teaches writing workshops on embodying the writing practice by combining her knowledge as a Yoga teacher and parts of her own artistic practice. She is currently working on her first novel, in addition to other multidisciplinary art projects. Franz hopes you dream often; she hopes you find reasons to stay.
