Magic and Human Rights in Mexico

It is my honour and pleasure to have been invited to Mexico City to take part in two exciting activities. Next week I will lecture to the Circle of Magicians in Mexico and share my thoughts on how to make magic meaningful. The lecture draws on my three stage shows and development of metaphysical magic over the last few years.

The international network of magicians, mentalists and mystery entertainers is supportive and highly welcoming. As a Founder of Psycrets: The British Society of Mystery Entertainers I have been pleased at the growth of our organisation over the last five years to include members from all over he world, including Mexico.

The second event is a two-day workshop on measuring human rights and the application of measurement frameworks to Latin American democracies over the last 30 years. The event is funded by CONACYT and hosted by the faculty of social sciences (FLACSO). Seemingly unrelated, these two events are very much linked in my own mind and in practice as I address philosophical and pragmatic issues surrounding human rights through my magical performances.

I have studied Mexico for many years and have had the honour of supervising many Mexican PhDs over the last 15 years. I visited Mexico in 2010 and I am really looking forward to my return, especially under these delightful circumstances that allow me to bring magic and measurement to such a wonderful country

Now that we have survived the Mayan apocalypse it is fitting to return to Mexico to carry on with work from both sides of my life!
