The digital platform for the Black Cultural Activism Map will be built by Xana, a live loop musician, sound and web designer, composer and poet - often working collaboratively with other artists, researchers, theatre practitioners and filmmakers. In particular, Xana is passionate about working with young people, devising creative workshops, encouraging the engagement of others with music, and broadcast technology. 

Xana is an organiser of Afrotech Festival; a recipient of Spitalfields Music Open Call funding award; and an artist in residence at Tate Modern and Tate Britain. Xana's interests include archives as places of active memory and future building; sound in architecture; data and its impact on local communities and stories around transhumanism.
