An acclaimed, passionate spoken word poet, Miles Chambers was named Bristol’s 1st City Poet laureate by the current Mayor Marvin Rees.
He’s been presenting his own show (Lyrical Minded) at Ujima Radio 98fm. He has a BA Hons in Graphic Design and an MA in visual Cultural.
His work reflects about where he’s at, never quite losing sight of where he’s from. He has claimed that Bristol is “full of paradoxes.” He recently fronted a youtube video campaign for Bristol Energy which attracted almost 15,000 hits and has presented a BBC History programme, as part of the BBC Civilisation series, with more TV work on the horizon.
