Dallas Poetry Slam is one of the most respected and longest-running poetry organizations in the world. Established in 1994, Dallas Slam continues to be at the forefront of innovation in the Local, National and International Poetry Community, all while hosting a weekly show for local artists.
Dallas Poetry Slam has a mission to provide a platform for artists to share their work and voices. Through community events and open mic nights, we create a safe and inclusive space for individuals to express themselves and engage with others. Additionally, we work to promote literacy and creative expression by hosting workshops and educational programs for individuals of all ages. By supporting local artists and fostering a love for language and storytelling, we aim to build a stronger and more connected community.
