History Slam - Contested History

Mama Alto is a gender transcendent diva, cabaret artiste, jazz singer and community activist. She is a non-binary trans femme person of colour who works with the radical potential of storytelling, strength in softness & power in vulnerability. And she’s bringing all this to our History Slam.

Led by Mama Alto, the history slammers will present complex, uncomfortable, exhilarating provocations on Contested History in three minutes or less.

The slammers are historians, storytellers and history-keepers. They are affiliated with Museums Victoria, Professional Historians Association (Victoria) and History Council of Victoria. These organisations are presenting the History Slam as their contribution to History Week 2018. Full program details will be released in September.

Tickets will be available via Museums Victoria. We'll provide a link here when the ticketing page is launched.
