Art and Resistance through Education
Anamica Rahman (she/her) is an experienced Bangladeshi-American art history student with a passion for arts education and artivism.
She is the current facilitator of ARTE’s after-school club at Newcomers High-school located in Long Island City, Queens. In 2020, she was an intern for ARTE and supported our first Vision of Justice award. Anamica brings her extensive professional background from various institutions embedded in New York City. Her experience stems from The Studio Museum in Harlem, Brooklyn Children’s Museum, Museum of the City of New York, Apollo Theater, Studio in a School, Children’s Museum of Arts, United Nations Federal Credit Union, Queens Library, and Studio Institute. This year, she graduates from Hunter College with a B.A. in Art Theory and History.
Anamica is thrilled to join ARTE again and support their mission as a nexus that ignites the dialogue of social justice issues among youth.
One of Anamica’s favorite art pieces is Untitled (Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird) by Frida Kahlo.
