BSL SLAM - First UK Deaf Slam Poetry event.
Fri 30 June 2017, 18:30 – 21:30 BST
We are hosting the first UK BSL Slam Poetry event, inspired by ASL Slam which started in 2006 in America. We hope to showcase the great many artists in the UK who use BSL as their language and create a platform for them and others to express themselves and grow.
The event will be held in a large venue with bar and seats. We will have some social time for people to talk and get to know each other and the presenters. Then we will begin the show with an "open mic" session to get the energy going and allow anyone who wants to express themselves the opportunity to do so. Following that will be the main headliners shows. Afterwards the event will finish and return to a social event where people just have fun with like minded individuals.
We are sure it will be a major event and we hope its a regular night in London and also across the UK.
