Founded in 2005 by David Britten of Ottawa, Canada .No Rules Slam gave local poet's ,mc's , singers and musicians a platform to perform and create without the rules you would typically find in a normal slam poetry competition. There were no set time limits performers could use props, musical instruments etc. The audience would choose the winner based on how loud the audience would react for each performance this was measured by a sound meter because of this No Rules Slam quickly became a local hit among Artist from all genres and was a launch pad for many local artists. We are proud to bring this back to the City where it all began and give a new generation of talent the chance show case their work.
