Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 22nd May, for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams as we visit the Linden Endowment for the Arts.

The Linden Endowment for the Arts (known as the LEA) is a group of 29 regions, donated by Linden Lab to the residents for the promotion of the arts on the grid, and managed by residents. There are two groups of regions – the Core Regions, which consist of nine regions that are generally occupied for three months at a time (although people can occupy them for shorter periods or apply for extensions), and twenty AIR Regions (or Artist in Resident Regions) which are granted to residents for a six month period.

Currently, applications are open for Round 13 of the AIR Land Grants (they close on May 3oth). That means that if you would like a full prim region on which you can build an installation, you can find out more and apply here.

So this week, Designing Worlds takes a trip to the LEA to see what sort of installations and events people have used their LEA land grants to create.

Firstly, we travel to the gateway region of LEA3 before exploring The Anthropic Principle, one of two fantastic installations created by Gem Preiz. Then we see film and photos of a range of other installations before visiting the installation the Poetry of the Planets created by Caledonia Skytower.

It’s a beautiful and fascinating show – so join us at 2pm SLT in the studio.
