Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley is an artist working predominantly in digital media (Animation, sound and Video Games) to Archive the experiences of being a Black Trans person. Their practice focuses on recording the lives of Black Trans people, intertwining lived experience with fiction to imaginatively retell Trans stories. Throughout history, Black queer and Trans people have been erased from the archives. Because of this it is necessary not only to archive our existence, but also the many creative narratives we have used and continue to use to share our experiences.
Danielle's work has been shown in Science Gallery, MU, Barbican, Tate, Les Urbains and The Copeland Gallery. An online component of their work can often be found at daniellebrathwaiteshirley.com
