Farrah Rahaman is an interdisciplinary artist and scholar from San Fernando, Trinidad. As a CAMRA Fellows Undergraduate at Penn, Farrah receievd her first training in media making using ethnographic and ethical knowledge production methods. Her work at CAMRA, BlackStar Film Festival and the Leeway Foundation has enhanced her desire to use film based and teaching practice, to explore the ways in which communities of color resist, decolonize and build.

Currently, she is the Communications Director at CAMRA and a PhD student at the Annenberg School of Communication. Her current work focuses on the activist and artist networks in the Caribbean and Latin America who are actively eroding colonially produced calcifications through their collaboration. Such collectives embody the rich and defiant intellectual heritage of the Global South to enact anti-hegemonic feminist processes and imagine an environment beyond crisis.
