The longest running national youth slam in Europe SLAMbassadors is now officially open for entries!
We are seeking spoken word, poetry, raps and emcee bars around the theme of ‘Identity’. – Powerful, challenging, transformational 3-minute pieces which make the whole world change after hearing.
We are seeking life-affirming, angry, soft, political, personal, redemptive, revolutionary and celebratory poetry, in an attempt to reclaim lost voices and talent-scout the next generation of spoken word artists.
- Write a piece that you believe in, taking the idea of ‘Identity’ as its basis.
- Learn the piece so that you can perform it to the best of your ability.
- Perform the piece to camera.
- Forward the film to Joelle Taylor along with a completed Registration Form (downloadable from this site).
- Films will be judged in October 2016 and winners notified shortly afterward.
All winners will be invited to participate in a masterclass weekend (22-23rd October) led by Joelle Taylor at the Poetry Society, before performing a debut solo set in support of a high profile poet at the Showcase Slam on 23rd October 2016.
