SLAMbition at Stratford East.

SLAMbition at Stratford East

Are you a Deaf, disabled and/or neurodivergent performer? Do you want the chance to showcase your talent in front of industry leaders? Then take part in Stratford East’s SLAMbition, in association with Ramps on the Moon.

SLAMbition is a brand new monologue slam-style competition putting a spotlight on the incredible range of Deaf, disabled and neurodivergent talent that exists in the arts. It’s an opportunity for artists to perform two monologues in front of an invited audience of leading industry creatives including directors, casting agents and casting directors. Not only is this an opportunity to showcase your talent, you’ll also receive one-on-one rehearsal time with a director and there’ll be plenty of networking opportunities – plus, there’ll also be an exciting package of prizes for our winners (prizes TBC soon).

The evening will be hosted by Tabby Lamb and will also feature guest appearances and networking opportunities for participating artists.

SLAMbition is open to Deaf, disabled and neurodivergent artists over the age of 18 from any and all backgrounds. We are particularly keen to receive applications from emerging artists, those without agency representation, LGBTQ+ and global majority artists. Stratford East is the Ramps on the Moon partner for London & South East, and as such, priority will be given to applicants from these areas.

For artists who are shielding or unable to attend events in person, we still encourage you to apply. Please let us know your access requirements when applying so we can look into making suitable arrangements.
