May I share Mr Magic

Here's some of my work for Western Riverina Arts, where I worked to raise the profile of local artists.

Dave Boyd is sharing his tricks. Leeton's 'Mr Magic' is known for performing at parties and events throughout the region.

Now he's putting those skills towards breaking down barriers and ensuring people of all abilities can perform magic.

Boyd's magic workshops will run for five weeks at Leeton Shire Library, starting at 10am on Saturday 18 July.

"Each week the children will be taught a magic trick and any props required will be provided free," said Dave Boyd. "The workshops are funded by FundAbility and Northcott NSW."

The workshop is open to ages nine to 15 and aims to provide a mix of all abilities. "By having a mix of children, the workshops will help get the kids interacting with each other and learning together."

"I'm hoping that having them share their skills will help those with a perceived disability to learn to entertain people using magic."
