You heard right!

13th September 2009…

A POETRY SLAM

EXCEPT NOT AT ALL


This is YOUR SPACE – for one night only!

Bring along your free verse, rap, spoken word, epics, ballads, haiku, brutal rhymez, shopping lists, tarot readings, diary entries about your ex, fairy tales, dad jokes, stand-up routines, soapbox rants, instruments, whatever voice you’ve got & sign up for the PENIS TOWER ANTI-SLAM  – you could win A PRIZE, you could win THE UNCONDITIONAL ADORATION OF YOUR PEERS, you could win PUPPIES, or WHATEVER’S BEHIND THIS DOOR – what’re you waiting for!

It’s easy. Turn up at 6pm, scrawl your name on the list & await INSTANT FAME.

Nothing will be rejected! For everyone else, slamming kicks off at 6 30!

GET ANGRY. GET CYNICAL. GET DISAFFECTED. GET AROUSED. PREACH, SELL SOME AVON, LESS GAMES, MORE LOVE, COME ON DON’T BE SHY THE WATER’S GREAT, THIS IS YOUR PLATFORM, BABY.

Entry is by donation, & all proceeds will go towards gallery upkeep & don’t forget YOUR PRIZES.

All ages are welcome to perform or attend, especially the absurdly young & the admirably old.

This is a SAFER SPACES initiative. Read a copy of this policy as you walk through the doors. OF FAME.

Join the fine people of ARThive gallery & ANTIslam for what will no doubt be an incredible night of

INCOHERENT WAILING!

RHYTHMIC SHRIEKING!

WHISPERING!

HOWLING AT THE MOON!

We want to hear YOU. We want to hear EVERYONE.

WHERE: ARThive Gallery – 1/111 Hunter St, (the Renew’d) Newcastle Mall

WHEN: Sunday, 13th September. Sign up at 6pm, slamming starts around 6 30pm.

We’ll keep it within reasonable hours so you fine hardworking folk can get some rest, though for the rest of us there will surely be after-slam-Times, or more slamming, or…

HOW MUCH: Free (donation)

More about the crew…

ARThive is Newcastle’s latest hippest raddest art gallery in the mall, one of the many projects realised by the Renew Newcastle project. Find out more at http://subjecthive.blogspot.com/ or drop in, open Tues-Fri 12p-5pm or by appointment.

ANTIslam is a small collective of poets/musicians/hedonists, who run the small-scale weekly slam Poems out of an abandoned tram in Newcastle’s West. We believe sharing stories is the best thing anyone can do. Ever.
