Prim Perfect and Designing Worlds have run talks at the Home and Garden Expo since (gulp) 2011 … and we’d like to invite YOU to be a part of this year’s series of talks with designers, landscapers and creatives within the Home and Garden market.

We’re planning to host events at 2pm (and, if needed, 5pm) every day. If you would really LOVE to give a presentation, but can’t make that time, contact us and we will see if we can fit you in.

We are happy to host talks, presentations, interviews, question and answer sessions and show and tell events. It’s an opportunity for designers to share ideas, for people to meet their favourite creators, for communities to come together and talk about their culture and ideas. We’re very open to hosting what YOU want to tell us about!

We are also planning to have some of our popular “Show and Tell” events and hopefully some panel discussions on Second Life.

If you would like to be a part of our programme at the Expo, please complete the form below with your topic and preferred dates and times. We will try to fit in as many people as we can!

Closing date: May 17th.

The new episode of Designing Worlds, as we continue our celebration of ten years of the show – looking back to 2014 this week – is now on the web!

DW364 – Designing Worlds 10th Anniversary Special #7 – 2014 from Richard Elen on Vimeo.

It was a year when we explore some fascinating locations and projects, ranging from Japanese residents building programs to assist new Japanese-speaking residents, to a glimpse of Arkansas history, courtesy of Arkansas State University (and Painter Merriman), to Yvanna Llanfair’s fascinating podcar tours of the mainland – and, in the Blake Sea, we discovered a beautiful pirate town.

One Billion Rising in Second Life, photographed by Wildstar Beaumont

One Billion Rising in Second Life 2017, photographed by Wildstar Beaumont

For the fifth year, on February 14, 2017, men and women in Second Life will join activists, writers, thinkers, celebrities, and people across the world to Rise, Resist and Unite as a show of unity, individual strength, and the need for change.

One Billion Rising first began in 2013 with the fierce struggle against sexual and physical violence – taking on the advocacy against rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation and sex trafficking that V-Day campaigns over 18 years have been at the forefront of. Over the last five years, as One Billion Rising has grown and the local campaigns deepened, it has also brought in economic violence and the violence of poverty, racial violence, gender violence, violence caused by corruption, occupation and aggression, violence caused by environmental disasters, climate change and environmental plunder, violence impacting women in the context of state sponsored wars, militarization, and the worsening internal and international displacement of millions of people, and violence created by corporate greed, among so many others.

RISE! RESIST! UNITE!

This year, One Billion Rising Revolution is giving sharper focus and visibility to the exploitation of women, and to harnessing even stronger global solidarity to demand an end to violence in all forms.

The Second Life event will feature a four-region stage where 200 people can come together to dance, surrounded by an area of art installations, an arena for poetry and dramatic productions, and informational exhibits. A variety of performers will play over the 24-hour period and poetry and dramatic events will be held at different times, enabling people all over the world to attend this virtual event no matter their timezone. The regions will have a General maturity rating to allow all residents an opportunity to participate. Pictures are welcome on the event’s Flickr group.

If you would like to volunteer to support the event, go here to find out how you can join in.

If you would like to report on the event as a member of the press, go here.

The objective of the event is to raise awareness, not to raise funds; however, information about real-world organisations will be available for those wishing to donate.

We will be announcing the sponsors for One Billion Rising shortly. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, go here (please note, as we are not a fundraising event, we have a limited number of sponsorship spaces to cover costs of the 4 regions used for the 24 hours of music, dance, poetry, literature, art installations and shows).

Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 18th December, for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams in Second Life, as we explore some of the regions that are great places to visit to get you in the holiday mood!

First of all we take a trip to Groenland Kangamiut, better known to many of you as Greenland, created by Kaelyn Alecto. Then we move on to Banditoswald Citadel, a beautiful winter region created for the season by Andrej, which contains some great rides, skating lakes – and even dragon rides – as Elrik finds out! We should point out, however, that this region is flagged adult as there are some private romantic spots that people can discover.

Then we visit The Dickens Project on LEA 7 and talk to the two people behind it – Caledonia Skytower and Aoife Lorefield before we take a super tour of the whole region. Then finally we visit the Linden Winter Wonderland region (accessed through the Portal Park), and talk to Xiola Linden about some of the treats that the region offers (and we try out the snowball fight and the snowboarding course) – and other Linden plans for Christmas, especially Second Life’s annual Holiday Shop & Hop event. It’s a chance to fill your stockings and your shopping bags with clothing, hair, furniture, decor, and more. Event held Dec. 15 to Jan. 1.
