David Berglas and the Foundation for Promoting the Art of Magic
As you already know, our slogan for the Essential Magic Conference is Learn, Share and Collaborate.
Yet we continue to be amazed at the sheer generosity of the people supporting this event. From the Speakers who are appearing to the many Media and Production Partners who are doing everything they can to make this event a success. This week we received an email from one of the greatest magicians ever to walk the stage, David Berglas. In 1999 David established the FP-AM, the Foundation for Promoting the Art of Magic. Each year the foundation donates money to a number of individuals and institutions in order to help them promote magic.
Now the FP-AM is donating 60 tickets for the Essential Magic Conference. These tickets are going to people who probably wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford the conference. Some are going to the Magic College in Capetown, South Africa.
We have just spoken with Jack Delvin, President of The Magic Circle and confirmed that another portion of the tickets will be going to the Young Magicians Club at The Magic Circle. More will be distributed soon.
This is an incredible offer on the part of the FP-AM and totally in line with our aim to share the conference as widely as possible to people interested in our craft. Thank you David Berglas and the Foundation for Promoting the Art of Magic.
