SLAMbassadors workshops

 SLAMbassadors UK is The Poetry Society’s spoken word education programme. We work with young people in secondary schools, youth groups, young traveler centres – anywhere where there are young people who have a story to tell. 

Workshops are delivered by some of the biggest names in spoken word, and focus on the theme of ‘identity’. They are specifically are designed to boost self-confidence, engage with at-risk youth, as well as improve communication and literacy skills.

“It has quite literally changed his life”

We can offer each participating setting two full day workshops in your school with a SLAMbassadors UK poet educator, working towards creating original spoken word pieces on the theme of ‘identity’. Email [email protected] with this enquiry form for more details.

For clusters of schools, or local schools networks we can also offer:

  • Bespoke teacher training looking at performance poetry techniques
  • Participation by some in a regional showcase with other participating schools
