Siana Bangura (she/her) is a Writer, Producer, Campaigner, and Systems Change Practitioner hailing from South East London, now living, working, and creating between London and the West Midlands.

Siana is the founder and former editor of the Black British Feminist platform, No Fly on the WALL; author of critically acclaimed debut collection, ‘Elephant’, a book of poetry meditating on Black British womanhood and life growing up in London; producer of ‘1500 & Counting’, a documentary film investigating deaths in custody and police brutality in the UK; founder of Courageous Films, a social justice-focused documentary production house; and Curator at Siana Bangura Productions, a creative studio focusing on designing events, experiences, and programmes that bring art to life, engaging communities at grassroots level to enjoy work through multiple mediums.

A multi-disciplinary leader, Siana works and campaigns on issues of race, class, and gender and their intersections and is currently working on projects focusing on climate change, the arms trade, Tech Justice, and state violence.

With a special interest in group dynamics in non-traditional structures, non-hierarchies, and decentralised networks, Siana was a campaigner at Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT), and is currently a member of the Transformational Governance Stewarding Group, facilitating experiments in meaningfully and intentionally transitioning from traditional to liberatory and life-affirming ways of working.

With experience in indie publishing, journalism, comms and campaigns under her belt, Siana's mission across her vast portfolio of work is to help move voices and experiences traditionally marginalised, from the margins to the centre, and encourage shifts from passive forms of ‘allyship’ to active comradeship.
