In this week’s Designing Worlds, we’re visiting the wonderful 24 hour event that was One Billion Rising 2019.

The show goes live on Monday 25th February at 2pm SLT on the Designing Worlds Vimeo channel and on the Designing Worlds channel at SLArtist – and you can join the special Watch Party (also at 2pm SLT) in our studio on Garden of Dreams.

On February 14, 2019, women and men in Second Life joined people across the world to Rise as a show of unity, individual strength, and the need for change. The event featured a four-region stage where 200 people could dance together, surrounded by an area of art installations and informational exhibits.

This year the One Billion Rising event continued last year’s theme – we RISE in Solidarity Against the Exploitation of Women in a world where governments and leaders seem to be increasingly anti-women. And we also had a special tribute to the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize laureates – Denis Mukwege and Nadia Murad – for their work against sexual violence as a weapon of war.

As in previous years, we asked a variety of performers to play over the 24-hour period, which let people all over the world attend the event no matter their timezone. The regions had a General maturity rating to allow all residents an opportunity to participate.

This programme documents OBR in SL 2019 and includes interviews with leading contributors and co-creators.
