A PeaceJamSlam is being held on Saturday 13th October 2018 in the Gloucester Hall at Fort Regent as part of the Rotary District Conference. The Slam is open to young people between the ages of 14-18 and will be a combination of inspirational speakers and workshops focusing on areas of interest to young people.
