Gran Slam 2020

Everybody NOW! and Feros Care present

After a huge success in 2019, Gran Slam is back, re-imagined in 2020 to reach more wordsmiths of wisdom and poetic seniors who are ready to step up to the soapbox and slam – slam poetry that is.

Gran Slam 2020 invites seniors from across Queensland and New South Wales to take part in a series of online workshops, culminating in a live-streamed slam poetry event.

Under the guidance of an expert poet and literary performer, participants will learn how to write and perform slam poetry to move and inspire, exploring tools and advice for crafting a great poem that can be expressed through spoken word.

Then, we go head to head as our Queensland and New South Wales poets battle it out alongside special guests as part of the live-streamed event.

No experience is necessary, just passion and enthusiasm to have a go!

The workshops are fun, inclusive, inspiring and a great chance to come together as strangers and leave as friends, slamming down a few stereotypes along the way.

Now more than ever we need to hear the voices of older Australians, amplified and visible to the world.

Limited spots are available, so get in quick to ensure you are a part of this unique opportunity.

10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Gold Coast, QLD Australia
