About

Victoria Poetry Project is Victoria’s go-to hub for spoken word poetry in the city of Victoria, BC, Canada. Our mandate is to promote, facilitate, and develop spoken word artists in Victoria, and expose the local community to high-calibre spoken word artists from other cities across Canada.

We run Vic Slam, a monthly poetry slam; Youth Slam, like Vic Slam but younger; and Tongues of Fire, a bi-weekly open mic with features from top spoken word poets from home and abroad. We also run school workshops and a high school slam festival!

We’re an honest-to-goodness non-profit! Read our bylaws and stuff.
