Flip The Script - Youth Open Mic

  • Bankstown Arts Centre 5 Olympic Parade Bankstown, NSW, 2200 Australia (map)

FLIP THE SCRIPT is Bankstown Poetry Slam's latest project. We want our youth to "flip the script" and showcase their many talents, challenge stereotypes, address issues and action change. 

There is no limit to what you can perform: Poetry, music, stories, magic. We'll give you a stage and a mic and you can choose how to use it. 

How is an open mic different to a poetry slam?
With open mic's, there are no strict time limits (but don't take 5eva on stage) and no judging involved. Flip The Script is a space for you to perform whatever you want to, without any rules. 

What is the age limit? 
Performers must be under the age of 24 to sign up, but we welcome everyone of all ages to watch and support our performers.

Please arrive at 4:00pm and sign up for a 4:30 pm start! 

If you have any questions, please email

Bankstown Poetry Slam is supported by Bankstown Youth Development Service (BYDS).
