In preparation for The Brave New Voices International Slam Competition 2009, Young Identity members competed for a place on the Young Identity team of 6 which would represent Manchester at the festival.

For many members, this was their first experience of slam poetry. Over 15 young people participated in the slam and the judges had a difficult time deciding on a winner!
