You are invited to the VWBPE Pre-conference Immersive session by Niela Miller / Marly Milena, entitled “MAKING DISCOVERIES WITH SL CREATIVE PROCESSES“.

MONDAY, March 12, 2018
11:00 am SLT to 12:30 pm SLT

We will explore how the representation of ourselves and our experiences in and out of a virtual world can lead to insight, new perceptions, and creative inspiration. We will use arts-based processes and tools such as building shapes, digital art, and (possibly) a drawing board. We will also demonstrate how these tools can be useful for educators wanting more engaging ways to interact with their students and material.

Grand Opening weekend for Curei’s Floating Gallery – Feb 24-25, from 8am-4pm SLT

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Inspiration%20Island/201/117/1004

It’s a wondrous adventure for your eyes, featuring the panoramic photo work of the photojournalist “Curei” (pronounced: CURE-ee-eye), and with special guest exhibitors from time to time as well.

We hope that you will enjoy our Central Plaza area, the little model sail boats, the lovely Meditation Alcove, our magnificent one-of-a-kind spiral fountain, our strolling peacocks, the great Little Jazz Corner, and the relaxing music stream on the rest of this “floater.” And who knows what else you might discover.

And, speaking of discovering something, a mysterious object has been hidden somewhere on this “floater.” It is an interesting surprise. Can you find it? Hint: It is a thing and it has but one moving part. If you find it, please don’t tell anyone what it is and don’t tell them where they can find it. Let them explore and find it for themselves.

This is a place to renew one’s soul. This is a place for your relaxation and enjoyment. This is a place to return to as often as you wish.

And below this little floating paradise, you will find an exceptionally interesting place,…. the main Inspiration Island. It is a place to learn and to discover. You will find a special Transportation Globe in the landing area of this floating gallery that will take you there.

Curei would also like to thank so many without whom this creation would not have been possible. To start with, Pluto Fairey gifted the basic “floater” as a beginning, and it was most certainly a wonderful place to start.  Then Wisdomseeker, the founder and director of the entire Inspiration Island sim, and the rest of the wonderful leadership of the island, gave us this very special home in their sky.

“Shakespeare’s Women” Saturday, October 21st 1-2:30pm Pacific Time

Marly Milena (Niela Miller in RL) invites you to come and enjoy a special performance on Saturday, October 21  from 1:00 to 2:30pm Pacific Time in Second Life, at the Octagon Globe Theater on Inspiration Island.

LOCATION: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Inspiration%20Island/34/89/23

Marly is the founder of the Octagon, and her programs are devoted to combining arts processes with self-exploration and interactive participation.

This is not a usual theatre performance but, rather, an exploration of the connection between the character, the person presenting the character. the art they have created as an energy depiction of the character, and the audience’s responses to questions from Marly, who will be facilitating a discussion about the relationship between Shakespeare’s women and contemporary parallels. Four women will be doing monologues from four different plays.

The event will conclude with an Elizabethan dance which is open to all. We will provide the music and animations for you to use.

You will need to be able to hear voice and sounds. Please come early to check your voice. Do not bring animations or adornments that could cause lag. Elizabethan dress encouraged but optional.  Contact Katsii Tennen with any questions.

We look forward to seeing you this Saturday!
