“The poets were total professionals and brought hot topics to life with their passion and energy.  The students were mesmerized and totally engaged.” – Tracy Sullivan, Hugh Boyd Secondary

The always popular Hullabaloo All Star Slam at the Rio Theatre returns this year, featuring a battle between heavyweights of the Canadian slam scene!
Hosted by Regina’s Johnny Trinh, the 2017 edition of the All Star Slam sees Charlie C Petch from Toronto, Dana I.D. Matthews from Vancouver, and Rabbit Richards from Montreal compete in a three-round poetry slam – with students judging!  Once the dust has settled, and the winner has been declared, there’s time for a Q&A with the artists.

The All Star Slam was amazing!  My students are enthused, pumped, and excited about writing and presenting their own slam.” – Marion Humeniuk, Maple Grove Elementary
