“The spoken word was the first technology by which man was able to let go of his environment in order to grasp it in a new way.” – Marshall McLuhan
Spoken word poetry is an extremely powerful form of art – due to its accessibility, involvement with the audience, and its potential to inspire. It is not only a form of storytelling, but also of activism.
Given spoken word poetry’s increasing popularity in today’s world, we asked a few members of the Moledro team to share some of their favorite slam poetry videos – and here they are! We’ve compiled a list of spoken word videos by a variety of artists, such as Sarah Kay and Rachel Rostad, among others. The links lead you to a platform called VideoKen. We hope you enjoy listening to this curation of voices!
