86 Park St., Attleboro, MA
6:30 sign-ups, 7:00 open mic, 7:30 poetry slam
FREE show for all ages
The Boston Poetry Slam has presented a free poetry slam in conjunction with the Attleboro Arts Museum annually since 2007! This year’s special event will feature three National-Poetry-Slam-bound teams and an open mic headlined by YOU, hosted by BPS SlamMaster Simone Beaubien. As always, the show is held in the main room of the Museum at 86 Park St. in Attleboro, and the event is free of charge.
This year’s event will reprise the high-energy show format of the past three years: an open mic for members of the Attleboro community and beyond will kick off the night. After the open mic, teams from the Boston Poetry Slam, and two more fabulous guests will go head-to-head-to-head in a performance poetry exhibition! These three freshly selected teams will be shaking out their metaphors in preparation for their trip to the National Poetry Slam in Chicago this August.
The Attleboro Arts Museum is located at 86 Park St. in Attleboro, Mass., just a short walk from the Attleboro stop on the Providence/Boston line of the Commuter Rail. Signups for the open mic begin at 6:30pm, with the open mic starting at 7:00. A poetry slam featuring all-star slam teams will begin at the end of the open mic, around 7:30. The show is all ages and admission is free.
