The Burlington Slam Project is helping youth, and the young at heart, discover their voices, share their stories and is working to make art entertaining and accessible for the general public.  BSP holds a monthly, poetry oriented, high-energy competition that includes an open mic and a different special guest artist, each month.

The series has been running for 7 years (as of July 2015) in the city of Burlington, ON, and continues to gain momentum largely off the gumption of its founders and core supporters and the simple laws of attraction. The supporters and participants come from diverse backgrounds and find commonality in the expression of the written word and the nuance of competitive performance.
