Victory Mini-Fest

What says poetry slam more than a boxing ring?

Time to take your gloves off, Whakatū, for a night of scintillating alliteration, logophile uppercuts and a rhythmic pummelling from some of Victory and beyond’s greatest voices.

After participating in workshops with Action Education - some of the best slam poets in Aotearoa - these verbal virtuosos will take to the ring under the auspices of the incredible Victory Boxing team. Word, rhyme, waiata, rap, solo, group, beautiful, tough, real.

Some claim slam poetry started in a Chicago boxing ring. We say, we don’t care, we’re doing it our own Victory way. Time to give ‘em the ol’ One -Two, Whakatū.

(Please note, gloves are to actually stay on.)
