DAYTIME ALL-STAR SLAMS!

 

VICTORIOUS VOICES ALL STAR SLAM:

Canada’s oldest youth spoken word arts festival is back, and better than ever!  Victorious Voices 2017 takes place April 18th to April 20th, and will feature performances, workshops, and a high school poetry slam tournament.  We’re pleased to offer a daytime showcase that’s perfect for getting your students excited about poetry: the All Star Slam.

The All Star Slam is a head-to-head-to-head battle between Victorious Voices Festival artists (see next page) from across Canada, who compete in a three-round poetry slam. Student judges pick the winner!  This year we’re offering two All Star Slams: one in Duncan, and one in Victoria.
