See Change is very proud to present the world’s first mental health magic show:
DEMYSTIFY THIS with social-change magician Shane Quilty
In our experience at the See Change campaign, people are more likely to be open in their behaviour and attitudes to mental health when they’re relaxed and having fun. So why not dabble in bit of magic to help challenge stigma and explore the topic of mental health?
After huge success with his sexual health-themed magic show as part of Durex’s recent college campus campaign, acclaimed conceptual magician Shane Quilty returns with a new show that has been specially commissioned by See Change to help change attitudes to mental health. As part of World Mental Health Week 2013, the show was piloted at Carlow IT Students’ Union on Monday 7th October.
Audiences can expect mind-bending illusions and thought-provoking stunts dedicated to changing attitudes to mental health from Ireland’s only social-change magician.
The take-home message is that far from the realms of mysticism, experiencing a mental health problem is in fact quite an ordinary experience of every day life while the lengths that we go to hide it are actually quite the magic trick!
