SLAM TV is a site dedicated to the oldest art form on the planet, spoken word, and the newest , video art. The combination of these two forms of expression is about to spark the imagination of the broadband generation who share consciousness through the digital bandwidth. With social media, online video and blogs the web has opened the door for a new global culture dedicated to the word. SLAM TV will showcase this breaking wave as it crashes on the silicon shores of our present.
SLAM TV is a multi-arts collaboration between media art collective Undergrowth.org, Word Travels, the organisation behind the Australian Poetry Slam and Verb Studios an independent production company based in Melbourne and Darwin. Together these two organisations will explore and showcase new collaborations possible between literature and new media.
