Last night’s Academy of Magical Arts Awards started with a special fellowship bestowed upon Lisa Menna for her extraordinary work in magic. The short video presented above is from 2010 and shows Lisa using magic to make connections among the people in Papua, New Guinea.

We will be presenting video from various award and fellowship winners throughout the week… they will not necessarily be in order but we wanted to started with the very first announced award to give you time to watch the stream of the entire event for yourself; it is streaming free on Vimeo.
