I'm happy to announce that I have again been re-elected Vice President of the Canadian Association of Magicians (CAM), Canada's largest magic association.
This is a HUGE year for magicians worldwide. Here's why:
It's a big year for Canadian magicians—from July 25-30, 2022, the World Championship of Magic (FISM) appears in Quebec City!
FISM is an international competition for magicians. It is held every three years in a different country and was last held in Busan, South Korea in 2018. That's where it was announced that Canada won the next host city!
The multi-day convention draws thousands of magicians worldwide and was supposed to happen in 2021, but unfortunately, COVID-19 got in the way.
Now, FISM all happens this July!! You don't want to miss this!
There are many reasons why this is a big deal. Let me share two:
A HUGE opportunity for Canada, CAM, and our members to come together and show the world Canadian hospitality and magic!
FISM has NEVER appeared in North America… EVER! Fun Fact: FISM was founded in 1948.
Competitors will have a chance to show off their magic skills in front of thousands of people and compete for the acclaimed Grand Prix title across several categories—including stage magic, micro magic (close-up magic.)
If you are a magician, there are two ways you can help.
First, if you're in Canada and haven't yet joined CAM, now is the time! We work hard every day to support magicians in our country and worldwide. If you want to be part of that effort (and get access to some pretty great resources), join us at www.cammagic.org.
Second—spread the word! We want as many people as possible to come out and see all of the incredible magic at the World Championships this summer.
As Vice President, I'm thrilled to be part of a fantastic team and represent CAM at such an exciting time!
