Nelson Regional Slam Finals
Featuring Carrie Rudzinski and Ken Arkind

Poetry Slam is the art and heart of the spoken word. It is the competitive edge of performance poetry.

Slam takes poetry off the shelf and sows it in the hearts of everyday people through its fusion of talking blues, rap and more traditional forms. It has become a world-wide phenomenon and a major player in arts and literary festivals the world over. A catalyst for change, a voice for those without a voice, slam poetry engages the audience in the revelry of language and puts them firmly in the judges’ seat.

The Nelson regional final will feature guest performances by US Slam champions Carrie Rudzinski and Ken Arkind. They will set the scene for our own local finalists to compete for the chance to represent the Nelson region at the New Zealand Poetry Slam finals in Hamilton in November. The evening will be emceed in his own indomitable style by local poet Mark Raffills.
