We are delighted to announce the line-up for the SLAMbassadors Showcase 2018. On Sunday 18 November at King’s Place, London, we will be celebrating the next generation of spoken word artists, hand-picked by Joelle Taylor, as well as 17 years of SLAMbassadors.
Eight new artists will work with Joelle Taylor over a weekend of Masterclasses, creating new work and improving their performance skills, to the SLAMbassadors Showcase on 18 November. A huge thank you to all the applicants. We’re so excited to announce the participants are Destiny Adeyemi, Aaisha Alfathi, Noah Jacob, Jaeden Koshoni, Joshua Eyakware, Matt Sowerby, Beth-Ellen Hollis and Precious Olisaokafor. Joelle and the SLAMbassadors team were so impressed with their applications and we can’t wait to work with them.
Four more emerging artists hand-picked by Joelle, who are already starting to establish a name for themselves on the spoken word scene, will also take to the stage. They are: Bex Gordon, Katie Walters, Matt L.T. Smith and Aoife O’Connor.
These twelve SLAMbassadors 2018 participants will perform alongside acclaimed former SLAMbassadors winners: Anthony Anaxagorou and Ollie O’Neill, both former winners. Joelle Taylor will host and headline the night.
