Presented by the Calgary Spoken Word Society
Experience the fun of topical poetry being proclaimed in a lively, competitive atmosphere! This event, presented by the Calgary Spoken Word Society, will weave themes relating to homelessness with other topics of interest.
In the 2010 Calgary Spoken Word Festival, we hosted the first ever Youth Slam! It was such a success that we developed a quo-pro relationship with the Calgary Public Library to create a Youth Slam! initiative. This is My City dates: Youth Slam! January 14, February 11, March 10, April 14, 2 pm.
Entitled "Central 2nd Saturday SLAM!" it will occur monthly with a Slam! component and a workshop aimed at encouraging youth to try and embrace SLAM and spoken word poetry.
The Youth Slams alternate weekends. One month is a Slam, the next month is a workshop.
