Poetry Slam Barcelona

Creation centered on the word & the stage

The Poetry Slam is a competition that combines poetry and performance. Based on a dynamic, participatory format that creates a new relation between the public and the poets, Barcelona Poetry Slam is a platform for contemporary artistic creation centring on the word.

The project combines the word and the stage at the centre of a new cultural offer, using the Slam and the Spoken Word as recourses for developing and promoting expression and communication in a performance space. It is a social network of creators/poets for whom the use of language, particularly the poetry slam, is a tool to develop their creativity

The regular slam championship has been held since February 2010 and has hundreds of followers, poets and public who meet every month to compete, share and applaud the slammers’ performances. This year is season four.
