Canberra entrants in the 2008 National Poetry Slam – in video

johnboy 16 March 2009 7

Last December we were thrilled by the performance of the ACT entrants in the 2008 National Poetry slam at the Sydney Opera House.

As luck would have it last night on ABC2 I came across the video of the show. So here are the ACT entrants in video: Omar Musa (Overall winner of the competition), David Finigan, and Adam Hadley.

Another finalist and former resident of ACT in the slam was Jay Gould. Won the Victorian round. Went to Narrabundah College and now resides in Melbourne but can be found at random times in Canberra! On ya Jay!

Oh, wow! So proud of the ACT!! That Omar Musa is incredible, but they were all very powerful in their way.

Well Jacinta needs to let more people know.

JB – Since becomeing the Woodford Poetry Slam Champion Adam Hadley now goes solely under the name of Jacinta.

I believe it has even become quite a sensitive point – he now actually insists on Jacinta in all media, posters and press.
