One Billion Rising Coming to Second Life

On Saturday February 14, the annual One Billion Rising event, a worldwide campaign to end violence against women, will take place across the world. This includes the virtual world of Second Life, which will be having it's third event.

In Second Life, we will be marking the occasion (as we did last year) with a twenty-four hour one day event that will allow women and men to gather. There will be music, there will be art installations and exhibitions, there will be poetry sessions, there will be storytelling events, there will be live dramatic performances, there will be dancing – and there will be information kiosks that will share information about organisations devoted to promoting justice for women across the globe, and stories of events that will be happening around the world.

The Second Life event will feature a four-region stage where 200 people can dance together, surrounded by an area of art installations and informational exhibits. A variety of performers will play over the 24-hour period, enabling people all over the world to attend this virtual event no matter their timezone. The regions will have a General maturity rating to allow all residents an opportunity to participate.
The event's Second Life Group is "One Billion Rising," and is led by Honour McMillian.
