BAM! Youth Slam Team Showcase

BAM! Toronto Youth Slam is Toronto’s only monthly youth poetry slam providing a platform for young spoken word poets, rhyme-slingers, and wordsmiths across Toronto and the GTA. From a collection of spoken word poetry workshops in schools, to monthly local slams, showcases, and other arts mentoring programs, BAM! has been bringing spoken word to communities of youth since 2008.

Meet this year’s collective of BAM! Poets and artists who will be spitting fire for The Word On The Street.
