Changes! We’re almost 10!
We’re going through changes! As we approach 10 years of monthly poetry slams and open mics in the city of Burlington, Ontario; there are a few things that have been evolving behind the scenes.
At February’s slam we asked our audience to complete a survey. Since losing our home venue of 5 years; we have been in transition to find a new space to call our own. We have tried a few things and have our wish list in hand. Now we’re listening to you, to find out your perfect poetry slam venue.
Part of the changes you will see starting in April 2018 include an increase to our cover. After 9 years of being only $5, we are bumping it up to $10 (or PWYC). This change is needed to continue to cover the venue costs, bring in special featured guest artists and still offer cash prizes to our slammers.
We’re working on ensuring that we give you a solid show, with access to food and drinks, in a space that is our own. We’re always open to suggestions and in need of volunteers. We hope you will continue to support the slam as we move forward into the next phase of our growth and development. We do this for you; and hope you’ll keep coming out and letting us know if it’s working.
