SLAM! Spoken Word Poetry

FREE - $3 Suggested Donation
All Ages

A showcase of youth and community poets as well as an open mic to offer more community voices a platform.

In honor of Father's Day this month we will be featuring several artists from local Hip Hop crew Bless The Child and the wider Burlington community in celebration of fatherhood and positive attributes of manhood. In these days and times we need all the positive affirmation of manhood we can uplift - a compassionate manhood that reflects an appreciation of humanity, respect for nature, women and children.

 This event is in honor of fathers, sons, grandfathers, uncles, brothers and friends and all the love, light and kindness they bring to the world!

The Burlington Poetry Slam is Arts Riot's longest running residency. True to the motto Destroy Apathy it is a local open mic and platform of expression for experienced and budding poets alike. We pride ourselves on holding a warmly inviting
inclusive space that is safe to be vulnerable and authentic in and to share your unique expression. All are welcome!
