The spoken word version of Eurovision, hosted by the UNESCO Cities of Literature and their partners — where each City slams their way to the grand title of SlamOvision Champion!

The Slam O Vision event is a project of the international UNESCO Cities of Literature. Slam poets in 11 Cities of Literature compete to be named the Slam O Vision champion.

Iowa City poets and poetry lovers join us to watch and rank the 11 poets. The same will happen in the other participating Cities of Literature. The scores will be tabulated and an international Slam O Vision poet will be crowned.

Participants from Bucheon, South Korea; Edinburgh, Scotland; Iowa City; Heidelberg, Germany; Melbourne, Australia; Nottingham, England; Quebec City, Canada; Reykjavik, Iceland; Seattle, Tartu, Estonia; and Utrecht, the Netherlands will take part by video.
