Magic for Rolesville, NC
The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged our local community in unprecedented and devastating ways. Now more than ever, we are in need of opportunities to promote positive mental and emotional wellbeing. This initiative aims to protect and improve mental health in the Rolesville, NC area during Summer 2020 through a seven-week FREE and VIRTUAL sleight of hand card magic course.
The Teaching Magician
Wesley Pritzlaff is an “Ethics in Place” Fellow, living in a small town generally lacking virtual opportunities to promote wellbeing during COVID-19. As part of his Kenan summer project, Wesley is determined to forge connections, inspire hope, and promote mindfulness practices through his teaching of sleight of hand magic.
Summer Magic is a seven-week commitment that will start the week of June 15 and end the week of July 27! Participants are asked to commit to 20-hours of in person sessions across the course. Education, tutorial, and discussion topics will change each week and build upon material from previous weeks.
