The latest episode of this season of Designing Worlds – when we pay the second of two visits to the Home and Garden Expo – is now on the web!

DW372 – Home & Garden Expo 2018 Part II from Richard Elen on Vimeo.

We look at the Hunt (organised by the Meeroos and BeYou), the Breedables Fair, the Art Gallery andone of the great courtyard spaces that were prominent this year – this time for FIN. And we also talk to the designer SkyRider Varriale, who exhibited at the Expo this year, sponsored a region, and donated two houses to the popular Home Decoration competition.

We also talk to two of the designers who were at the Expo – Robert Galland and Cassie Eldamar, and of course, there’s a lantern release to see!

And there’s plenty to see of the Expo itself, including a fantastic slideshow from Wildstar Beaumont.

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 first show of the new season (Season 25) of Designing Worlds – where we look back to the Relay for Life of Second Life Weekend held in July – is now on the web!

The Relay for Life weekend is the pinnacle of the annual campaigning for Relay for Life of Second Life, with the track running around amazing builds created by the organising committee, and past the stunning campsites created by the individual teams. We share builds that were beautiful and builds that are informative … and builds that are a mixture of both!
