UrbSLAM (Saturday Night Slam at UrbArts)
UrbSLAM has a new home: UrbArts on the Northside of STL in the Old North St. Louis neighborhood. Although the fourth season of UrbSLAM officially starts August 30th, we have several slams scheduled for the summer in the form of friendly bouts to be held in our new home. While we'll miss hosting the monthly poetry slam at Legacy Books and Café, our weekly open mic will continue there even as we launch our slam in Old North. Once the new season begins, poets are free to compete for a chance to win a cash prize and a spot on the 2015 UrbSLAM team. Started in fall 2011, UrbSLAM serves as fundraiser for UrbArts, a STL-based nonprofit organization, and a space where performance poets can develop their skills.
