Omar Farah on The Art of Spoken Word at TEDxUAlberta 2019

In 2019, Omar Farah was a speaker at TEDxUAlberta in Edmonton, Alberta.

According to TEDxUAlberta, "Omar Farah is a 22 year old Somali-Canadian Poet, Engineer-in-training, community builder, and all around 'homie'. Although he is relatively new to the spoken word scene, Omar has managed to make a name for himself locally and abroad as the former Edmonton Slam Champion, winner of the Saskatchewan Festival of Words, and finalist in the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word. He has performed across Canada and the United states from small local cafes to theatres. As well as a "veteran" of sorts having spoken at last year’s TEDxUAlberta conference. His style of rhythmic, complex at times, yet relatable poetry analyzes the world at large from the perspective of African diaspora and aims to transforms the biggest of critiques."
