Siënna Veelders

Heritage professional & advisor

Siënna has been a consultant and urban heritage professional at STIPO since 2016. After graduating from the Reinwardt Academy, she set to work to create awareness for the soul of the place in urban challenges. Due to a lack of the right tools, the Time Machine has been developed to retrieve the intrinsic values of an area together with local stakeholders. She has a hands-on mentality and enjoys working on participation processes in area development. She also shares STIPO's knowledge through workshops, training courses and connects city makers to regional networks such as the City at Eye Level Asia network. With this she combines her love for travel and cities. Raised with a father and stepfather as a cook, she strongly believes in connection through good food from all corners of the world.
