The JAFA Poetry Slam is back for our second slam of 2019! There is a short open mic open to all ages at the start, followed by an 18+ slam. There will only be FOUR open slam heats this year followed by our Auckland Regional Final in October. The winners of the Regional will travel to the National Poetry Slam later this year.

Ngā Hine Pūkōrero are a group of four Rangatahi Māori whose work is richly woven with themes of indigenous and gender issues. They use Waiata, Karakia and Te Reo Māori throughout their poetry. They dismantle stereotypes, confront the challenges their generation faces and share new perspectives that until now have rarely been heard. In July they will be travelling to Las Vegas, Nevada to compete at Brave New Voices, the largest Youth Poetry Slam Festival in the world.
