Slamovision is the global spoken word community’s Eurovision, a poetry competition hosted by the international UNESCO Cities of Literature. In 2021 and 2022, Cara Thompson and Abíọ́dún Abdul earned Nottingham back-to-back Slamovision victories. This year, Nottingham is looking to reclaim its Slamovision crown after Esther Koch from Manchester won the contest in 2023.
