Poetry Slam Barcelona

Creation centered on the word & the stage

Half poem, half performance, the Poetry Slam is a poetic contest with a lively, dynamic, participatory format that creates a new relation between the public and the poets. This month's competition will be held outdoors, in the Pati de les Dones. The project combines the word and the stage at the centre of a new cultural proposal, 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 and the focus of a space of social relation and exchange. After this month competition, Poetry Slam Barcelona will pause until September.
