A Museum of Magic

The history of magic as an art form has been shrouded in mystery in order to protect its secrets, often being handed down verbally from magician to magician. But in this secret museum of Sydney, this history of wonder and knowledge comes to life.

The Australian Museum of Magical Arts is set within the secret walls and corridors of The Magicians Cabaret Theatre. Through personal objects, photos and films, personal mementos, secret plans, books and artefacts, you can learn about the mind of a magician and the fascinating role magic has played in cultures.

This museum may be small, but it is packed with information and inspiration. Not just about revealing secrets. By discovering the role magic has played in movies, in war, even in history, you will also experience not just wonder but the beauty of imagination.

You will feel like you are searching, or travelling for the purpose of discovery.

Quit Dating Idiots

Come along and join us for three hours of fun, laughter, learning and healing. Each ticket ($47) includes a complimentary plus one so you can pay it forward… because let’s face it… we all know someone who has dated an idiot and could benefit from attending this workshop! So grab a girlfriend and I’ll see you there.

This workshop is for you if:
You are chronically single (and not through choice!)
You keep dating the same person (they just keep showing up in different disguises!)
What you say you want doesn’t match what you’re attracted to (you want a nice guy but are
attracted to bad boys)
You’ve lost your mojo after dating the wrong person for too long
You’re newly single and don’t know where to start

A Sneak Peek into What Will Be Covered:

Resolve and release emotional baggage from the past (this is like being able to press
Ctrl+Alt+Delete on your past hurts and relationship traumas)
Discover what makes you tick and what you REALLY need in a partner and a relationsip
Quality control protocol to avoid wasting time on the wrong people
How to spot red flags and how to exit gracefully when you encounter them
Fool-proof strategies that take the guess work out of dating
How to keep your mojo when you find the right guy

“May love find you.
Even.
When you are specifically. Strategically.
Hiding from it.” ~ Nayyirah Waheed

Spotlight Prowl

Centennial Parklands is home to a variety of nocturnal creatures, from brushtail possums, microbats and tawny frogmouths to one of Sydney’s largest colonies of grey headed flying fox.

Join our experienced Rangers for a fascinating and surprising spotlight walk to see how the Park transforms when the sun goes down.

Dusk is a great time to see wildlife, especially microbats, which we will be using bat detectors to seek out.

Measured Response

Measured Response brings together contemporary Aboriginal perspectives that engage with bodily and spiritual practices of art-making.

The artists often use themselves as a point of reference for measurement and creation. A weaver uses an arm’s reach to measure lengths of string. A ceramicist choreographs their hands to create form. Hand-blown glass needs the artist’s breath to take shape.

Measured Response demonstrates how our relationship to the world is calibrated through our bodily dimensions.

Curated by Emily McDaniel.
