Mind Over Slammer: Mission Statement
Mind Over Matter Arts Launch New National Poetry Slam; Mind Over Slammer;
with £1800 in Grand Slam Prize Money
Mind Over Matter Arts are thrilled to announce the launch of ‘Mind Over Slammer’, a brand new national initiative that merges bespoke workshops and regional poetry slams, culminating in a spectacular grand finale in the heart of London.
We are firmly committed to elevating poetry and performance, particularly within
communities that have often been overlooked.
Join us as we embark on a journey of artistic expression and performance excellence, utilising poetry as a dynamic tool to delve into the depths of human experience.
Our national poetry slam is more than an event; it’s an immersive program meticulously crafted to empower communities and spotlight exceptional talent.
We passionately believe in the transformative power of poetry and performance.
As part of our commitment to progressing slam culture in the UK, Mind Over Slammer offers FREE top-tier poetry workshops led by x6 international Slam Champion, Miss Yankey and co-facilitated by published poet, spoken word artist and BACP-accredited integrative psychotherapist, Anna Sinski.
These workshops are thoughtfully guided, amplifying creativetalents to new heights. Our unique approach fosters confidence, unleashes catharsis, and cultivates a strong sense of artistic camaraderie.
Mind Over Slammer is rooted in active engagement with the communities we passionately serve. Inclusivity is at the core of our ethos. Our artistic team represents a rich tapestry of cultural backgrounds. We embrace individuals from underrepresented backgrounds, fostering a more diverse and inclusive artistic landscape.
To foster boundless creativity, we proudly offer travel and accommodation bursaries to regional performers selected to participate in the London finale. Our hope is that these initiatives obliterate barriers and help dreams become achievable realities.
Our mission is to unlock the artistic potential within every individual whilst cultivating a diverse and inclusive landscape in the realm of poetry and performance. We invite you to join us on this journey of self-expression and community building through the mesmerising art of spoken word.
Together, we will illuminate a future that is brighter, richer, and more inclusive for all.
