Chair of the Board
Beena has been championing Art with Heart since the very beginning, as it embodies her belief that through accessible creativity and storytelling, you can bring people together and help them to find what they have in common. She’s a huge advocate of community, collectivity, and the power of paying it forward through gestures as simple as smiling at a stranger in the street.
Now a Talent Executive with BBC Studios, Beena has spent the last several years working as a producer and director in TV and audio. In 2016, she co-founded Sonder Radio and served as Non-Executive Director of Reform Radio, both social enterprises in Greater Manchester that use the power of radio to empower citizens.
Outside of work, you’ll find Beena travelling and working with wood or co-hosting Effin Hormones, a podcast about Perimenopause and beyond.
