SLAMbassadors is the national youth poetry slam championships.
Each year we search for the next generation of spoken word artists, rappers and MCs.
We are delighted to announce the winners of the 2017 SLAMbassadors competition! Please visit SLAMbassadors for more information, and get your FREE tickets to see them perform alongside legends of the spoken word scene – and two of this year’s judges – Sabrina Mahfouz and Joelle Taylor.
SLAMbassadors also runs a targeted workshop programme in education settings across the country. These sessions aim to engage young people with poetry and uncover new talent.
I was drifting. SLAMbassadors picked me up, and dropped me down with a newfound zeal and confidence… I felt powerful for maybe the first time in my life.
