Farrah Rahaman

Farrah rahaman

Farrah Rahaman is a cultural worker and interdisciplinary artist from San Fernando, Trinidad. Through her film based and teaching practice, she explores the ways in which communities of color resist, decolonize and build. Being moved by immersive space, material texture and soundscapes, she also is fascinated by the potential of installation to prompt reflection, critical thinking and to educate audiences. Farrah works with several Philadelphia based arts organizations including BlackStar Film Festival, The Institute of Contemporary Art, CAMRA at the University of Pennsylvania and The Clay Studio wearing a number of hats in programming, public engagement and community organizing. This fall, Farrah will continue her studies as the inaugural student of the dual Masters of Social Work and Masters of Fine Art at the University of Pennsylvania.
