Art Amok Slam

PSi Certified

The Art Amok! Poetry Slam Team was founded in 2006, one of Atlanta’s two poetry slam venues. Every year, Art Amok! sends a team of 4-5 poets to compete at the National Poetry Slam each summer. We also send representatives to the other two major national poetry competitions, the Women of the World (mid-March) and the Individual World Poetry Slam (October-November).

Art Amok! is a consciously populist, socially-engaged artistic organization. We embrace opportunities for multimedia collaboration and experimental art that pulls a steamboat through the heart. One of our goals is to put Atlanta poets on the map as a place of national poetic and experiential consciousness. We believe the artistic community is a place for social critique, constructive dialogue, mutual encouragement, challenging preconceptions, and bringing ourselves back to life. We strive to provide this space at our events.

We meet every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month (not every other week as the calendar below suggests, given that some months have more than 4 Fridays).
