Blueberry clusters as pin badges for the Gran Slam winners.
Everybody Now! run the Gran Slam each year:
Gran Slam is a community engagement project that gives voice to older Australians using the form of Slam Poetry.
The project is an opportunity for seniors – the original change makers and wordsmiths of wisdom – to write and perform poetry that moves and inspires. Gran Slam calls on passionate over 65’s with something important to say, a declaration to make, an opinion to be penned, a story to share.
Since the project was launched in 2019, eighty fearless seniors from across Queensland and New South Wales have taken a bold leap into the world of slam poetry under the mentorship and guidance of some of Australia’s most renowned performance poets.Everybody Now! 2022
