Slama acknowledges that our slam takes place in Naarm, on the lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded, no treaty was signed and it always was and always will be Aboriginal land.
Welcome to Slama for 2019!
We kick off the year with our first ever Gender Outlaw Slam. This is an invitation slam where we invite the top women and non-binary poets from the previous calendar year to compete in a three-round slam where they are crowned Slama's Gender Outlaw Champion and potentially qualify for a regional or international tournament for women and non-binary poets, like Women of the World Poetry Slam in the US.
Our 2019 Gender Outlaw Slam line-up is: Abigail Oghene, Ash Russell, Cas Lee, Charlotte Raymond, Consciously Kyah, Helchild, Morgaine van Wingerden, Natalie Jeffreys, Renée Mayne, Rhiann Issacs, Sharifa Tartoussi, Trixi Rosa, Waffle Irongirl, and Yasmin Yaman.
And we're very glad to have Amy Bodossian featuring!
Doors Open 7pm
Slam starts 7.30pm SHARP
