In this episode we talk to one of the main organisers of the Faire, Elizabeth Tinsley, as well as creators and designers, some of the organisers of events within the Fire, and some of the people behind the scenes who together with vendors and sponsors make up one of the biggest fundraisers in the virtual world, this year raising over $68,000US for the American Cancer Society’s Hope Hostel in Kenya.

We talk to one of the organisers, Kaerri Rae, and we’ll be seeing some fascinating stores, and meeting designers – and learning about the super-secret region that arrived for the opening!

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – the second of our visits to Fantasy Faire (recorded before the Faire closed on May 1st) – is now on the web.

 

In this show, we talk to Zander Greene, one of the co-founders of the Faire and also now one of the people behind the fabulous Fantasy Faire Radio, Sweetgwendoline Bailey and Eldowyn Inshan, who designed Twilight Illusion – one of the fourteen amazing regions, Aelva, who organised (and participated in!) the amazing Festival of Dance and Particles, Aisling Sinclair, who produced this year’s much-loved Quest, and Stevie Basevi and other roleplayers who joined us from the mud of Echtra to tell us about roleplay at the Faire.

And there is an extract from the wonderful production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which was presented at Fantasy Faire by the Faireland Players.

Ironically, we filmed this show in the quiet days before the Faire opened … so no-one was quite sure that it would be the fantastic success that it was, raising over L$7,714,000 (US$30,875) and producing some amazing stories – many of which you can read on the website.  In fact, the whole website is filled with the story of Fantasy Faire, and well worth a look!

Winter Nightfire’s wonderful creation for the Survivor and Caregivers’ Camp at Relay for Life is now available on the wb, and offers a fascinating introduction to the work of this powerfully moving artist.

Winter talks to Elrik about her work, while Saffia explores the much-admired installation that Winter created for Relay for Life – took you on an allegorical journey from the bleakness of diagnosis, on a long and difficult journey, with places of beauty for reflection and hopes for the future (the ruined cancer hospital is inspiring and poignant, a very special place) – till the journey reached its apogee in a burst of colour, excitement and sheer fun with a huge funfair.

Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 26th August for another episode of our new season of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams.

This week we pay a second visit to the Relay for Life Weekend installations – but this time we have the opportunity of looking at the work of an artist celebrated for her artworks in Second Life but who created the most amazing installation for the Relay for Life Weekend.

One of the highlights of this year’s event was the wonderful Survivors and Caregivers’ Camp created by the artist Winter Nightfire.  This took you on an allegorical journey from the bleakness of diagnosis, on a long and difficult journey, with places of beauty for reflection and hopes for the future (the ruined cancer hospital is inspiring and poignant, a very special place) – till the journey reached its apogee in a burst of colour, excitement and sheer fun with a huge funfair.

It was a spectacular, beautiful and powerful build – and we will be exploring it in detail on this week’s show.

And we will also be talking to Winter about her art and her work for charity within Second Life – and the crossover of the Artathon at the Second Life Community events.

It makes for another great show – so do come and watch it at 2pm!
