We’ll be talking to some of the people behind the Faire, including Elizabeth Tinsley, Da5id Abbott, OldeSoul Eldamar, Stevie Basevi, Zeelia Ysabel, Caledonia Skytower and Aoife Lorefield, to talk about the Faire and the work that goes into creating a multi-region, multi-day, multi-timezone event, including events such as parties, shopping, roleplay, performances, a Literary Festival and much, much more.

The final episode of this season of Designing Worlds, as we conclude our celebration of ten years of the show – looking back to 2017 – is now on the web!

DW367 – Designing Worlds 10th Anniversary Special #10 – 2017 from Richard Elen on Vimeo.

We look back to our visits to the Second Life Museum of Nuclear Warfare, Rosehaven, Feed a Smile, Octoberville and the Linden Endowment for the Arts. We celebrate another 10th Anniversary – that of Radio Riel, which occurred in 2017. And we travel off-grid to Inworlds, and we look forwards too with a visit to Linden Lab’s new platform – Sansar.

Saffia will be in discussion with our resident historian, Marianne McCann, and Wildstar Beaumont shows more photos from his archives!

And we remember some people we have known over the past decade who are now, sadly, no longer with us in either the virtual or the physical worlds.

And that’s the end of this season – but we will be back in late May with the start of our new season – so watch out for that!
