Farah Ahmed is the Events & Network Coordinator at Julie's Bicycle, a charity working at the intersection of arts and sustainability. She supports the delivery of events, campaigns, and marketing programme and profiles the work of the artists and organisations in the Julie’s Bicycle network. Farah produces podcasts The Colour Green, looking at the connections between racial and climate justice and the arts; and Green Heritage Futures, looking at sustainability and heritage.

Her interests lie in understanding the complex ecology of environmental, racial and social justice, colonial histories, ancestral connections to nature, creative activism, and how art can reshape climate narratives.

Farah is a co-founder and facilitator of Diaspora Dialogues for Our Futures, a reflective space for people of colour to centre collective care in the face of the climate crisis. She is an alumni of the peer-led accelerator programme Enrol Yourself, where she developed a self-portraiture project exploring climate grief, mental health and activism. She is also an Arts Emergency mentor.
