Abe Nouk is a poet – in performance and on the page, an MC, educator and hip hop lyricist. His passion is for the power of imagination – expressed with the freedom words provide. Arriving in Australia in 2004, Abe drew upon his experience as a refugee weaving stories of limitlessness, humour and grace. Independent publications include Humble (2013) and Dear Child (2014). Since placing in the Australian National Poetry Slam in 2013 festivals include Ubud Writers, Glastonbury (2014). Always challenging assumptions of what is possible, Abe asks his audiences for courage, and answers them with gratitude.
