On Thursday afternoon, Zohab Khan, educator, spoken word poet, motivational speaker, harmonica player, musician and hip-hop artist, visited Rivendell School and inspired us with a one hour performance.
Zohab’s presentation combined spoken-word poetry and self-development, which most of the staff and students found quite emotive and inspirational.
As a 4th generation Australian of Pakistani heritage who grew up in regional Australia, Zohab weaved his life experience into his work, drawing on social justice issues from racism to gender inequality and socio-economic disparities to make us all think.
Zohab helped the audience to come to the realisation that we are all poets and encouraged us to see spoken-word poetry as not only a platform for self-expression but also one to inspire change and increase movement towards an inclusive world, not just one of tolerance.
