Magic(k) Track

This year ConFusion introduces the Magic(k) programming track. From ancient traditions to technological illusions, magic in all its guises has been an ever-present element in fantasy and science fiction. Magic has also long been a staple of Michigan fandom, from Beltane maypole celebrations to chocolate and coffee rituals, as well as the courtly pomp of Elven Toast. Our interest in science fiction and fantasy points to the larger truth of imagining the possible as the first step to creating the changes we want to see in the world. Our programming aims for change by presenting strange rituals, spiritual technologies, and psychological curiosities. Follow the Magic(k) Track for a glimpse into real-life spiritual, mental, and fantastical shenanigans!
