Stories from Second Life
IMAGINE PeaceFest Second Life 2011
IMAGINE PeaceFest is a respite from Occupy protests, where global solutions are envisioned, and Second Life's most fabulous talent converge in spirit of peace, love, and harmony.
An eclectic melange of art, music, poetry, politics, and positive thinking, IMAGINE PeaceFest is a 3 day weekend, over 50 hours of events on dozens on Second Life regions.
Second Life's best and brightest and most talented, all turn out to bless us with their special human gifts.
Donations go to READA, RAWA, and One Laptop per Child, important and under-reported small causes, where our Second Life contributions really do make a big difference.
