Foundations Slam Thursday Aug 13th 6pm-8pm Pacific

Updated: Aug 6, 2020

Everything has a foundation that sets the ground for what is to come. This country was founded in 1776 on the ideals of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness with no women, black people, LGBTQ people, or non-property owners at the table to give input.


This slam is about addressing the history of our country from founding to today, and to recognize how the past affects current issues. This slam is also about building a new foundation for future years to come, and how we want to (re)shape our nation.


Rules:

  • This online slam is multi-generational (ages 9 - adult).

  • Write a poem and share it live during the event, or upload it to YouTube to share it during the event.

  • Uploaded poems may use cuts, but can have no editing effects, no b-roll, no music, and no props.

  • 3 min time limit (10 sec grace period)
