Hannah Novillo Erickson is a curator and organizer, working to provide platforms for communities to share their stories and heal through the power of history. As the Associate Curator of 3D Objects at the Minnesota Historical Society, Hannah has collaborated with BIPOC entrepreneurs, community members and artists to document and preserve the State’s history for current and future generations. Outside of the Minnesota Historical Society, Hannah is the Board Vice President of Dark Muse Performing Arts, an emerging arts organization centered on amplifying BIPOC stories and storytellers.
