Poetry Slam Barcelona

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. Poetry Slam Barcelona 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 proposal, using the slam and the spoken word as recourses for developing and promoting expression and communication in a performance space.

Poetry Slam Barcelona is also 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.

The regular slam championship in Barcelona 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.
