The SOMA has just announced a new symposium on the “Science of Magic, Wellbeing & Happiness,” which will take place on April 4th, 2020, at Goldsmiths University of London.
As they write,
The symposium focuses on how the impossible art of magic can enhance social, psychological, and physical wellbeing.
Not only will you learn about the scientific evidence, but you’ll also gain perspectives from experts who run wellbeing-focused magic organizations in healthcare, as charities, and more. It will be a great opportunity to connect with others in this field and explore further research avenues together.
Organized by Steve Bagienski and Gustav Kuhn, the line-up of speakers will bring together academic researchers of magic like Richard Wiseman with representatives of various magic charity organizations.
