Bankstown Poetry Slam hosted its second annual Grand Slam last year. This sold-out event featured the highest scoring poets from its monthly slam and was a fierce battle of words on everything from politics, love and family to religion and identity. Join us for an exciting showcase of the Grand Slam spoken word artists and see for yourself why Bankstown is home to the largest poetry slam in Australia. Hosted by Sara Mansour.
