Slamalamadingdong: Slamalamadingdong "New Shit" Slam featuring Team Slama
Slamalamadingdong acknowledges that our event takes place on stolen land, 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.
Join Slama for July to send off Team Slama to the National Poetry Slam, and warm up for the new season. This month it's a special off-season "new shit" slam where first time slammers get their name in the hat twice, and poets who've slammed before have to do brand new poems, at least in the first round. It's to encourage new poets and challenge regulars. We can't wait for a fresh new season with new poets and new poems.
Carryover names that weren't drawn in April, will be held until August, the first slam of the season that counts toward NPS Grand Slam points.
