We talk to Kaerri, the main organiser of the Expo, about the work that goes into the event, and Maxwell Graf, an old friend who’s recently returned to Second Life with a stunning new build.

And we take a ride on the monorail to explore a special selection of Linden Homes. All this, and more – including a selection of Expo photos from the wonderful Wildstar Beaumont.

One Billion Rising in Second Life 2020

One Billion Rising in Second Life 2020

In the first episode of our new Season, we pay a visit to the fantastic event of One Billion Rising in Second Life 2020!

Note that this programme includes still images representing violence against women, which some viewers may find upsetting.

We talk to the organisers of the event (and Saffia was one of them!), Briony, Dawny Daviau, Stevie Basevi and AvaJean Westland.

Stevie tells us about the vital role of volunteers, while Dawny talks about dance – and we have clips of the various dance acts, and Briony tells us about the amazing music this year. Kess Crystal talks about the special photography installation “I Rise”, and we talk about the Poetry and Prose events organised by Adele Ward.
