The latest episode of Designing Worlds – when we visit two places – the MadPea International Food Fair, and the amazing cause it is supporting – Feed a Smile, a project of Leben und Lernen in Kenia, Live and Learn in Kenya International – is now on the web!

We visit the Feed a Smile region and talk to Brique Topaz – Brique Zeiner in real life, who is the the Founder and Chairwoman of the German charity Leben und Lernen in Kenia, Live and Learn in Kenya International, whose project Feed a Smile is, and which is based on the shores of Lake Nakuru in Kenya, where they are building a school for local children, through sponsorship of individual children, and through events in Second Life, such as the International Food Fair.

Brique shows us around areas that are re-creations of the work being done on the ground in Africa, and explains how the Food Fair will be supporting the vital work of building a new kitchen for the school, and we’ll be seeing some films of the work as well.

Then we travel to the International Food Fair and join the organiser, Kestrel Keiroz, to learn what is going on there, with stores, an art gallery and regular music events, and we see some of the amazing food-related items you can purchase (with the money going to Feed a Smile).

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – where we discover more about MadPea, the long established Second Life group behind some of the best and most memorable games in Second Life – is now on the web.

We talk to Kiana Writer, the founder of Mad Pea, and Kess Crystal, the marketing director (and even sneak a peek at a planning meeting – but no spoilers!).

And we learn about the remarkable results of the Celebrity Auction held last September in support of Feed a Smile / Live and Learn in Kenya, a nonprofit which supports children in Kenya to help them gain an education. They are currently building a new school, and the money raised at the MadPea auction paid for a classroom – which has already been built – and children started lessons in it this January! We share a film about this work.

And we also see some of the process that goes into creating a game almost entirely within Second Life, and look at this in relation to their upcoming game – The Interview. And we learn the secret of the dreaded pink prim!

Then we head off to explore the game of The Ghost Town, part of the Firestorm Community Gateway – which is open to all!
