Bankstown Poetry Slam celebrates its fifth year of monthly spoken-word poetry events. With no topic too political and no verse too confronting, join us for a night of vibrant poetic storytelling as some of Sydney’s best spoken-word artists spin and spit their rhymes for the highest scores. Get your clicking fingers ready! Hosted by Sara Mansour, and featuring a surprise guest poet, this event is not to be missed.
