Al-Andalus Opens!

A view of the AlhambraThe fabulous sim of Al-Andalus is opening today!

This sim is going to be our sim of the month for the March edition of Prim Perfect – and we’re very excited about that – because the sim is part of a fascinating projects, set up by Michel Manin and Rose Springvale.

The Al-Andalus Caliphate Project is an attempt to reconstruct 14th Century Moor Alhambra. It aims to build around this virtual space a community of individuals willing to explore the modalities of interaction between different languages, nationalities, religions and cultures shaped by authentic Islamic principles. Those principles include political participation, separation of powers, justice and the rule of law.
Membership in the community is open to all, regardless of sim land ownership, SL premium status, species of avatar, gender, religion, national
origin, sexual orientation or other traditionally separatist classification, either real or apparent. The plan is to create a system of political and
legal governance, based on notions of community self-governance, active citizen participation, equality, dignity, social justice, democracy and
human rights.

And today, Saturday, March 8th, 2008 between 11:00 hrs slt and 22:00SLT, the Inaugural Festivities of the Al-Andalus Caliphate Project in SecondLife, celebrating the completion of the building phase of Al-Andalus, will take place in the Al-Andalus sims (Alhambra and Generalife).

They are inviting people to come and join our party under the stars of SL’s most amazing city and enjoy the music of ten of SL’s best known entertainers!
