We experienced Slam Poetry as a development method to give young people a voice, and to empower them to believe that their vision about life is valuable, necessary and significant for their community.
Slam Poetry is a form of spokenword art. Spokenword Poetry is a form of performative art that enhances the aesthetics of storytelling, word play and rhyming within a dynamic interaction with the audience. Spokenword involves performance-based poetry that focuses on the genuine approach of the author on different life events and dillemas. The art of spokenword has existed for many millenia. The tradition of the spokenword is particular to cultures around the world when oral traditions were the means to pass on the knowledge to the future generations.
