It's time to reexamine our understanding of the concept of "home". Perhaps it’s less of a location or place, but rather something else entirely…an experience. Adán Bean is an accomplished emcee, spoken word poet, and voice-over talent hailing from the small town of Massillon, OH, but has called Atlanta home for over a decade. As a graduate of Morehouse College, he’s represented Atlanta on national slam teams and was crowned the winner of the 2017 National Poetry Slam song contest. As one half of the retro-progressive hip hop group, The Remnant, Adán has released three projects with the band as well as toured the country extensively bringing the music to the masses. His work has been featured on or with such companies/brands as Def Jam Records, Cash Money Records, The Bert Show, CarMax, Chic-Fil-A, Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines and more. He is currently finishing up on his first solo project (Untitled) on Skylane Creative. In addition to writing, recording and performing music, he co-owns the culture website Forth District and hosts The SetList podcast, gearing up for its third season, which interviews artists and musicians through the prism of their musical influences. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
