The Satellite Slam!

Satellite Slam


Join us in celebrating the first-ever Satellite Slam, a celebration of our voice, our work, and our people.

*UPDATE: Due to the current restrictions in Victoria and the uncertainty around when and how these may change, we have decided to postpone the Satellite Slam. It would not be safe, responsible, or even possible for us to go ahead with the event given the current climate. The Satellite Slam will now take place on Thursday 14 October and will form part of Mental Health Week from 9 – 16 October.

Satellite Slam is the coming together of the core elements that make up Satellite Foundation and the opportunity to celebrate the achievements of our small but growing organisation.

Peer connection, creativity, and the sharing of thoughts and experiences are unique aspects of Satellite’s programs. The Slam will bring these elements together in a celebration of creativity through spoken word poetry, book readings, music and song, photography exhibitions and more.

Mc’d by the inimitable Brad McEwan, the Satellite Slam aims to amplify the voices of young people and their supporters who live with and around family mental health challenges.

Guests can expect to get a taste of some of the creative activities on offer in our programs and activities through an array of mini-installations: photographic scavenger hunts, mindfulness exercises, arts and crafts table, and even a unique creative voice installation.

Come and experience the heart of Satellite. Tickets are limited so make sure to book yours today. Look out for upcoming announcements on special guest speakers, musicians, and more!
