Hamilton Youth (12-22 years) will have a chance to compete with their poetry for an opportunity to represent their community at a "Youth In Unison" Music and Spoken Word Festival this summer, in Guelph, Ontario.

Not only that, but internationally acclaimed spoken word artist Shane Koyczan will be bringing his band and doing a full set to give you an earful of pleasure.

Opening for Shane and the band will be members of the 2012 Burlington Slam Project Team, as they prepare to represent the community on the US National stage in August.

Doors at 6:30 PM / Tickets $20 / $10 for Youth with ID
$5 for Youth Slammers - pre-registration available
For advance tickets and slam pre-registration contact Nea Reid directly.

Youth Slammers should have 3 original poems prepared
Slam Rules:
3 minute 10 second time limit / no props or costumes / no music or instruments unless created by your voice OR body / original works only
poems can be read off paper, but judges are encouraged to score based on writing AND performance.
