KEVIN SPENCER

Educator | Artist | Consultant | Social Entrepreneur

Historically, artists have been at the forefront of social change. Spencer advocates the power of the arts to inspire, transform, and build community. He believes in the inherent dignity of all people. Yet around the world, billions of individuals are excluded from full participation in the cultural systems that shape their lives. Spencer is a thought leader that addresses the inequality of individuals with different abilities with creativity, confidence, and courage.

Kevin Spencer is an artist who believes in creating inclusive communities where everyone experiences an authentic sense of belonging and no one – for any reason – is relegated to the margins.

He is an educator, consultant, performer, and social entrepreneur. But he is also a world-renowned illusionist with dozens of accolades to his credit. He and his wife, Cindy, were the recipients of the Merlin Award for International Magicians of the Year (2009) and six-time recipients of Performing Arts Entertainer of the Year. More recently, the Milbourne Christopher Foundation honored them as Illusionists of the Year (2015) in recognition of their dedication to the art of illusion. They are also the recipients of the Harry Chapin Award for Contributions to Humanity.

Spencer has dedicated his life to making a difference in communities around the world – both on and off the stage.
