This event will feature live performers Rapid Randy & Bubbles Song, with a casual dress code! You can learn more about Inara below:

“As Inara Pey, I’ve been continuously engaged in Second Life since December 2006 – although my initial involvement goes back to before then. Over the years, I’ve been involved in many things, some out of interest, some as a result of real life activities at the time. I’ve been a builder, a sim designer, an estate manager, a region holder, a homestead builder, I’ve run a residential rental business, I’ve tutored and explored, I’ve role-played, I’ve helped establish groups and communities – the list goes on. However, it is as a blogger and explorer that I’ve found my niche – and I count myself as lucky in having people find what I have to write about interesting! I don’t claim to be an expert in art – much less an artist – but I do have an armchair appreciation for the subject something which has led me over the last five years in particular to blog extensively about art exhibits, artists and installations across Second Life. ”

Inara is the owner and author of the very popular Second Life site, Modem World. You can visit Modem World at the following link: www.modemworld.me

We hope to see you at the exhibition opening! Slurl: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Water%20Haven/28/114/32

PRESS RELEASE: The Dickens Project presents the New and the Familiar, beginning December 4

PRESS RELEASE
Issue: Immediate Release

Kill Date: January 3rd, 2021

Media Contact:

Caledonia Skytower, Seanchai Library
caledoniaskytower@gmail.com

The Dickens Project presents the New

and the Familiar, beginning December 4

Second Life – The Seanchai Library is proud to announce the opening of The Dickens Project 2020 Edition. The Project began as a special seasonal presentation of Seanchai Library in 2008. It transformed into an interactive environment in 2012, then to a full region experience in 2017. This year’s two regions are inspired by the Victorian world of A Christmas Carol and other beloved tales, offering a broad spectrum of opportunities to explore, discover, and participate.

The Dickens Project presented over 80 hours of events during the month of December 2019, and this year’s schedule is just as ambitious. Information is available on Seanchai’s website in addition to other information that will be released during opening week. This year’s two-region creation opens to the Second Life community on Friday, December 4th and will remain open through Sunday, January 3rd.

“Every year The Dickens Project intentionally blends the familiar features of previous years with new things waiting to be discovered,” said Caledonia Skytower of Seanchai Library. “It helps our loyal visitors feel like they are coming home, gets them excited about what’s new, and encourages them to share the experience with their friends. That’s our goal. Each year the Dickens Project is just a little different. This year, with a second region, there is a lot that is fresh and new.”

The Dickens Project is also about a community of Second Life individuals and organizations that come together for this month long celebration. That community will again include Radio Riel, and Innsmouth SL. The Community Virtual Library will feature aspects of Victorian life from clothing, workers conditions, Dickens in Spanish, to The London Exhibition in a dedicated information district. Idle Rogue Productions will return with a new edition of their “Midnight Dinner” show, and Misfit Dance & Performance Art returns with “A Very Misfit Christmas” filled with seasonal joy. These are in addition to the live story reading programs which are Seanchai Library’s hallmark.

Virtuoso Performing Arts joins the community this year, presenting their new “Tales of Beatrix Potter” show New Year’s weekend; and the SL Hawks Aerobatic Team will present their “Ghost Flights of Christmas” air show in performances in the skies above Dickens Harbour. That’s right: an air show based on A Christmas Carol.

For inquiring minds, there is “The Horse in Victorian London”, and “The Mine” interactive experiences. The later experience includes a ride through a mine with Sultan the pit pony and his coal carts. “Sultan” is a tribute to the name of one of the last pit ponies in Wales. Like their predecessor, the Urchin Experience (on hiatus this year), these experiences seek to balance the view of Dickens’ world. “It’s not all plum puddings and prize turkeys,” says Skytower, “not for children, the working poor, women, or for animals.”

The popular “Carol Week” returns with a section of Dickens’ novella presented live each day in a “Story Tour” to the sites on the region inspired by the story. Saturday, December 19th features Fezziwig’s Ball in the Opera House. The week culminates in The Big Read on Sunday, December 20th at Noon in Dickens Square. The Big Read is a relay-style presentation involving 9-12 voices in a continuous reading of “A Christmas Carol” from the beginning to the end of it.

“And this is just the tip of the iceberg,” added Skytower, “We have art shows this year for the first time, and wearable horses and carriages that you can drive around on each region, and so much more. It’s not a cliche’. It’s really impossible to concisely summarize everything you can do, see, or experience at this year’s Project. You just have to come and check it out for yourself.”

Seanchai Library offers its thanks to Linden Labs and Patch Linden, our 2020 Region Sponsors.

http://irelandslstory.blogspot.com/p/the-dickens-project-sl.html

NOTE TO PRESS/BLOGGERS: A Limited Preview is scheduled for Wednesday, December 2nd from 2-4pm. Members of the virtual media are invited to get a closer look at The Project before it officially opens. Team Dickens creators will be on hand to answer questions, and the music stream will broadcast music and highlight various features in the region.

About the Seanchai Library

Seanchai Library (pronounced Shawn-a-kee, which means “Storyteller” in Irish Gaelic.) was founded in March of 2008 in Second Life. The program remains dedicated to promoting the power of stories to transform and inspire through live voice presentations: “We bring stories of all kinds to life, in Second Life and other virtual worlds.” http://irelandslstory.blogspot.com/

All times listed are SLT/ Pacific.
