DECEMBER CONTINUES OUR 2018/19 COMPETITIVE SEASON!!!
That means that for the next 3 months of poetry slam EVERYONE who signs up for the slam, WILL EARN POINTS towards making our team finals next spring. The TOP THREE every month will win CASH PRIZES as well as additional points, giving the most consistent participants opportunity to earn an advantage at the SEASON FINALS in MARCH 2019.
This slam is for ANYONE wanting to have their performance scored by the randomly selected audience judges. For anyone who DOESN’T WANT TO BE JUDGED; there is ALWAYS an OPEN MIC (5 minutes of freedom).
Got Something to Say?!
Every month we have an Open Mic (sign up and share anything for 5 minutes) and a poetry slam (a competition judged by the audience) where the top 3 win cash prizes, courtesy of our umbrella non-profit Open Minds Respect Events (www.omre.ca).
You get all of this for ONLY $10! (PWYC)
Slammers and Open Mic ONLY $5!!!
DECEMBER’s FEATURE ARTIST IS: ISAAC BOND
Isaac is a spoken word and hip-hop artist from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. He has been creating and performing for 15 years and his work has been featured at several events and festivals such as Ness Creek, Tiny Lights, Verses Festival of Words, and the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word. His work entwines the poignancy of vulnerability with the playfulness of rhythm. He has shared space in stages and classrooms across Canada, and hopes that in that space he can meet you as you are, wherever you’re at.
Come on out and see why poets from all over come to slam at “the bsp”.
Bring a friend or an enemy, take a shot at the open mic or come be a judge; it’s all a part of the show and we couldn’t have one without you!
