Grand Slam a huge success

For the second year in a row, some of western Sydney’s finest poets took to the stage at the Art Gallery of NSW to compete with their poetry for a much anticipated Bankstown Poetry Slam finale.

The Grand Slam featured an incredibly diverse range of poets from all ages, backgrounds and communities. Voted in as the best poets from random audience members of each month’s slam, the stellar line up showcased western Sydney’s voices and stories like never seen before.


 The winners of the Bankstown Poetry Grand Slam 2016 are:

UnTAMEable (Alice Tame, Mark Sims and Layla Mkh)

Earth, Wind & Fire (Miski Omar, Antar Hanif and Kevin Jin)

Mic Drop Momento (Rana Abdullah, Brendan Reed and Kevin Ngo)
