SLAM! – In-Person Performance
In this performance hosted by Brendan McLeod, SLAM poetry champions and professional poets compete for top honours in front of student judges. This school-tested program illustrates how poetry can be a powerful tool for self-expression and social commentary, as the performers channel the crowd’s energy into a shared sense of community and deeper appreciation for the art form.
Poetry Writing & Performance – In-Person Workshop
In this workshop, some of Canada’s top spoken word poets lead students through writing and performance exercises. It exposes youth to poetry as a living, breathing art form, while teaching them how to enrich their own writing with poetic and literary devices. Working with professional artists, your students will deepen their engagement with the arts, build confidence in their own creative potential, and enhance their in-class learning experience. Can be booked as 4 simultaneous workshops if booked with a performance or 4 consecutive workshops if booked separately.
