This isn’t us ‘reinventing the wheel’ (magic as an artform is built upon magicians teaching the next generation) but rather answering the call by UK governments to encourage learning within the expressive arts community. The Welsh govenmernt in particular recently set out specific guidance here.
Our workshops are aimed at young people and are designed to teach the fundamentals of magic including, techniques, multi-tasking and using storytelling to astound an audience.
Our workshops can be enjoyed by people of all ages and backgrounds, but we are specifically focusing on children aged 12-16 in deprived areas of the UK, both virtually and in person.
We recognise that in some locations there is a greater risk of children and young adults missing out on access to culture and the arts, both of which are fundamental to expanding a person’s understanding of the world, and potentially unlocking their hidden talents.
We are not only teaching magic but also introducing fundamental life skills that can be used in any walk of life. Techniques such as multi-tasking, presentation skills, dealing with others and most importantly building confidence, are essential building blocks for young adults.
We are so inspired by our new partnership with the Children’s University as we love performing magic and the opportunity to teach the next generation of young adults is an amazing part of our ongoing legacy.
We hope to see you at one of workshops soon!
