The Jazz Poetry Slam


Stonnington Jazz Festival 2018

With the Selene Messinis Trio, hosted by Dave Graney.

Returning triumphantly for the third round, don’t miss one of Stonnington’s Festival highlights, the much-loved poetry slam. In this uniquely Stonnington event, poets and spoken word artists are invited to become a member of the band. Register to recite and the trio will improvise a jazz soundtrack underneath your words in front of a live audience. A welcoming and relaxed atmosphere, the poetry slam is a chance to meet your local wordsmiths, collaborate with musicians and get creative. This all ages event is free and a swag of prizes are to be won.
