2015 Art Amok
This will be happening June 17th 9:00pm at The Lorde’s House –1714 Jonesboro Rd SE (the SE is important) Atlanta, GA
The slam will happen like any other slam. It is open to everyone, you sign up, we draw numbers, you perform. Whereas judging would normally happen on a scale of 1-10, at this slam, the judges will judge Granny Panty to Thong by tossing their judgments onstage.

June 18th, come out to a regular mic hosted by the longest running feminist bookstore in Atlanta. This month will feature a former member of Art Amok Slam and powerhouse poet Shyla Hardwick.
SOCK PUPPET SLAM
June 29th Art Amok’s four phat poets invade Four Fat Cows, an ice creamery in Alpharetta, GA. Bring the kids out to this debut night of sock puppets, nursery rhymes and Theresa Davis as our first feature.
The Art Amok! Poetry Slam Team was founded in 2006, one of Atlanta’s two poetry slam venues.
Art Amok! is a consciously populist, socially-engaged artistic organization. We embrace opportunities for multimedia collaboration and experimental art that pulls a steamboat through the heart. One of our goals is to put Atlanta poets on the map as a place of national poetic and experiential consciousness. We believe the artistic community is a place for social critique, constructive dialogue, mutual encouragement, challenging preconceptions, and bringing ourselves back to life. We strive to provide this space at our events.
