MARIA is a singer, mc, poet and
spoken word artist based in Bristol.
She is one of the lead vocalists for
the Dutty Moonshine Big Band, and
over lockdown has been exploring
her poetic side in more detail.
Her writings focus on women's rights, and the inequalities that exist for women in the creative sector, as well as day to day. She is also more recently beginning to use her work to discuss the importance of looking after and being able to openly discuss mental health.

#WhoseFuture represents an age-old struggle for youth resilience, security, agency and the need for positive social change. Celebrating a striking portfolio of bold visual imagery from Rising's network of young creatives, this project presents a unique opportunity for us all to listen, reflect and act, and for our young people to be heard.
Rising Arts Agency is a community of young creative thinkers aged 16-30. Their mission is to empower Bristol's under-represented young people to fulfil their creative ambitions and to affect wider social change through the arts. The agency is co-created with and for young people, and is fiercely independent.
