The latest episode of Designing Worlds – where we visit the festival for One Billion Rising in Second Life, which took place on 14th February – is now on the web.

One Billion Rising in Second Life is a twenty-four hour one day event in support of the international event One Billion Rising, which aims to build awareness of the violence that women and girls across the globe are subjected to.  In Second Life, across four regions there were art installations and exhibitions,  poetry sessions, storytelling events,  live dance  performances, twenty four hours of music – and also information kiosks that shared information about organisations devoted to promoting justice for women across the globe, and stories of events that were happening around the world.

In the show, we look at some of the elements that went into the event – the amazing video that was shot ahead of the event, part of the particle display by Tansee that was given at the event, one of the dances that were performed in the beautiful Sunflower Theatre, and a full performance of a special play by Bhelanna Blaze, performed by the Cold Shot Ensemble – and, of course, the beautiful and thought provoking art installations that were located all around the perimeter of the event.

The latest episode of Designing Worlds –  re-visiting the amazing event that was One Billion Rising in Second Life – is now on the web!

DW264 – One Billion Rising in SL 2015 from Richard Elen on Vimeo.

One Billion Rising was a Second Life event featuring a four-region stage where 200 people could dance together, surrounded by an area of art installations, an arena for poetry and dance productions, and informational exhibits. A variety of performers played over the 24-hour period and poetry and dance events were held at different times, enabling people all over the world to attend this virtual event no matter their timezone. The objective of the event was to raise awareness, not to raise funds; however, information about real-world organisations was be available in kiosks for those wishing to donate.

The day after, we took our cameras to explore the four regions and talk to some of the people behind the event including Victor Mornington, Samantha Ohrberg, Drew Slate, Garnet Psaltery, Taralyn Gravois, AvaJean Westland, Adele Ward and our own director, Aisling Sinclair, who created the landscaping and infrastructure.

It makes for a fascinating “Behind the Scenes show” for One Billion Rising in Second Life 2015!

Join us at 2pm today, Monday 2nd March for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams, when we’ll be re-visiting the amazing event that was One Billion Rising in Second Life.

ONE BILLION RISING began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS. On February 14, 2015, men and women in all over the world joined with activists, writers, thinkers, celebrities, and people across the world to Drum, Dance, and Rise as a show of unity, individual strength, and the need for change.
