Poetry Performances at TED

As we end our National Poetry Month celebration, we’ve compiled a selection of three TED videos about poetry.

The list features poets who delivered poetry performances at the TED stage. This trio includes YouTube sensation Shane Koyczan, Project V.O.I.C.E. founder Sarah Kay, and Tony Award-winning artist Lemon Andersen.

For more recommendations, check out the “Spoken-Word Fireworks” playlist curated by TED. Which poets do you nominate to perform at future conferences?
