SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS/WORKSHOPS

On stage or in a living room, I share storiesideas, and strategies to facilitate breakthrough and joy. I bring my passion for deep inquiry and human connection to your event. I definitely exude humor and poise.

My talk "That's Not Funny": Feminism, Motherhood, and Finding Your Way addresses issues that badass, independent women face during the transition to motherhood.

I present the Non-Attached to Outcome Motivational Interviewing (NAOMI) workshop with social worker Margaret Mary Downey.  NAOMI is our approach to Motivational Interviewing, incorporating Buddhist ideas of mindfulness and impermanence. It helps people get unstuck!

bio


Svea Vikander is a Swedish-Canadian communications generalist and mental health professional. Currently residing in Berkeley, California, she is happiest when something unusual, risky, or beautiful is happening. With her co-host Gregory Scharpen, she interviews cultural producers for Arts in Review, the longest-running arts radio show in the Bay Area. Broadcast on KALX Berkeley 90.7FM at 12pm each Thursday, the show also livestreams here.

Svea is the founder of Studio Béluga, a work, performance, and exhibition space established in a converted warehouse in Montréal, Québec. Between 2009-2011, she helmed a team of creative professionals, curating the work of over 60 artists, coordinating international residencies, eliciting wide media coverage, and cleaning up after too many wine-fueled parties. Today, the project functions as a Canada-wide curatorial collective led by Alina Maizel, an original co-founder and pictured above, left.

Svea has produced written, audio, and visual content for individuals, non-profits, businesses, and activist collectives. She has contributed to a lefty Canadian news source, radical mental health zines, parenting blogs, gallery catalogues, a novelty twitter account impersonating the Toronto Library System, and the Swedish journal Feministiskt Perspektiv. Svea has presented work at conferences held by Concordia University, Montreal; University of Toronto; and Goldsmith's University, London. 

As a mental health professional, Svea specializes in ADHD treatment and maternal health; she also loves helping people create the careers of their dreams. She has held a small private practice for over a decade and holds an MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Goddard College, VT. Svea recently spent a year providing therapy and guidance to low-income families at the Homeless Prenatal Program, San Francisco. She has two kids, no pets, and a wardrobe of unbearably (unwearably) heavy vintage clothing.
