Hannah is joining the Global Grooves team as our new Arts Administrator following three years of freelancing after university in a range of arts projects. Her background is in philosophy but a life-long passion for music led her to join her university radio station, first as a host and then as Station Manager.
Since then, Hannah has founded a community radio station of her own. Steam Radio started during the lockdowns of 2020 as a way to keep people connected when they couldn’t be together. Since then it has burst into the real world with a studio in Hulme’s The Old Abbey Taphouse. The station continues to provide a centre for a unique community to form around and hosts a regular schedule of community projects, parties and workshops.
Hannah’s other work has involved event programming, music business, workshop facilitation and more. She is also a keen DJ and plays a range of music spanning samba, jazz, disco, psych, baile funk and more. Her party series, Nossa!, offers a vehicle for these sounds on a community focused dancefloor and gives her a chance to explore her Brazilian heritage through radio shows and a yearly mini Brazilian carnival.
