RAPPER, STORYTELLER, POET.
I'm a wordsmith. I use lyrics as alchemy to transform struggle into triumph. Loss into love. Coal into diamonds. I connect with my Greek ancestry to bring the wisdom of my people forwards through mythology and meaning.
I work to amplify other voices, so that our global narratives can continue to be powerful, poetic and of the people.

With 14 years of experience as a workshop facilitator, I continue to amplify the voices of young poets, to make sure untold stories push our societies forward in powerful ways.
Disengaged, disenfranchised, disheartened.
These are the students who stunned us all with the power of poetry... Luka graciously offered not only his talent, but his heart
to young people on the verge of being lost.
- Kylie Owens, English Teacher.
I just want to express my sincere thanks to Luka for his warmth, generosity, and insights. Our boys have benefited so much from his wisdom and insights, and I’ve had many conversations with boys over the past couple of days who have commented on how engaging the workshops have been. I’ve been so impressed by Luka’s ability to forge a connection with his audience, even with the limitations of Zoom.
- Jeffrey Lewis, Head of English.

THE FUTURE ANCIENTS PODCAST
Luka Lesson draws on his creative powers to create new poems and rap verses inspired by conversations with guests from across the planet.
His own Greek heritage and the histories of the people he speaks to also often filter through, as well as his love of philosophy, social change, art and visions for the future.
