Magicians’ Academy was established in 2008 in Hyderabad by a well known magician Samala Venu who has 33 years of experience in the field of magic. The academy was set up to help struggling and ambitious magicians by providing them scholarships and other forms of incentives with the help of the government. The academy provides the member magicians with lots of inputs by organising lectures, seminars and conferences with the involvement of noted magicians across the globe. It also aims at bringing in professionalism amongst magicians and conducting soft skills and public relations training sessions.
