Daniëlle Zawadi

Daniëlle Zawadi (1999), born in Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo, writes prose and is a spoken word performer.

Her stories explore what it means to be a young second-generation migrant in the Netherlands, and the differing significance of their Congolese roots for herself and her family. She also explores difficult questions around sexuality, queerness and acceptance amid intergenerational cultural clashes.

In 2021 she made her theater debut with her one-woman show at the Amsterdam Fringe Festival and The Black Achievement Month The Hague. Zawadi also hosts her own evenings with her platform for Hague poets, Zwart Schaap, and is coordinator of the Poetry Circle 070. In 2020 Zawadi won the Black Indigenous People of Color Voice Award at the 1st Queer & Feminist Poetry Awards.
