Black, queer, and fearless; Davelle Barnes is a meme curator, a film ethnographer, a social poet and a dapper rapper. The multidisciplinary teaching artist is a Women’s Mobile Museum Project Apprentice at the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center, a UPENN CAMRA Fellow, a Philly-CAM Digital Media Literacy Fellow and a Warrior Writer.
Drawing from her intersecting identities and lived experience, the former Army Sergeant is quickly becoming a veteran media maker. Race, class, gender inequality, homophobia and war are recurring themes of her work. Her writing has appeared on forHarriet.com, Afro Punk, Elixher Magazine and Quntfront.
Her short film, “A Collage of Masculinity” recently screened at Our Queer Arts Festival and will be part of this year’s, Queer Women of Color Media Arts Project (QWOCMAP) Film Festival.
