Gran Slam – ‘Seens & Teens’
An Inter-generational Slam Poetry Program for Teenagers and Seniors
Calling all curious and courageous wordsmiths of wisdom aged over 65-years young!
We’re seeking 15 dynamic seniors to join creative forces with 15 teenagers as part of our new intergenerational Slam Poetry Program, Gran Slam ‘Teens and Seens’.
Seniors from across the Gold Coast will come together with teenagers from Somerset College for three specially designed poetry masterclasses, before taking to the stage alongside internationally renowned sound bending beat boxer, Tom Thum as part of Somerset Storyfest.
The free workshops will include tips and tools for igniting your imagination, crafting poems, and boosting confidence.
No experience is required – just enthusiasm to have a go, a desire to learn new skills and connect with your peers and young people in a fun, creative and social environment.
Gran Slam ‘Teens and Seens’ is designed to smash stereotypes of age and aging, bringing generations together to pen their passions, share their stories and collectively articulate their aspirations for the future through the power of poetry and spoken word performance.
Workshops not for you but want to come see the show?! Gran Slam LIVE info here.
