It's a "think-off" with oversized aspirations. That's the BIG part. It's also a congenial community get-together over drinks and eats to discuss the whats, hows and whys of doing the right thing. That's the ETHICAL QUESTION component.
And it's an evening that makes an impact. That's where the SLAM comes in.
The annual Big Ethical Question Slam gives teams a chance to compete for a $600 Grand Prize...and a trophy that brings out the philosopher in all of us and celebrates public philosophy in our communities.
The Slam is Michigan-made, and first introduced in Ann Arbor in 2011. Since then, the Slam has become an annual tradition and popular city event. Slamming is also becoming popular in other cities, including Ypsilanti, and most recently, in Detroit.
Discover why Slams are attracting new supporters and fans.
