Auryn Beorn at the Home and Garden Expo

Auryn Beorn at the Home and Garden Expo

Meet Auryn Beorn of Black Tulip, Wednesday 17th September at 2pm SLT in the Prim Perfect Castle.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

See the full list of our talks here:

Schedule of Talks

And don’t forget – every day at 4pm SLT, we will be holding a lantern release from the ramparts of the Prim Perfect castle. It’s a short time for quiet reflection, for thinking of those we have lost, for celebrating those who are still with us.

The best place to watch will probably the stone circle overlooking the castle. And after the lantern release, while you are here, you can also explore the element of Alfred Lord Tennyson’s poem, The Lady of Shalott, which Aisling Sinclair has incorporated in this beautiful build.

Come and join us at 4pm each day of the Expo for a beautiful and moving ceremony.

Sign up for our talks!

Following the success of our discussion / interview programmes at the Home and Garden Expos for 2011, 2012 and 2013 … and the Christmas Expos and the Birthdays … well, you get the picture!  At the 7th Home and Garden Expo, running from September 16th to 28th, we are planning a further series of talks with designers and landscapers.

These talks will take place inside our very special poetically inspired castle on the Prim Perfect sponsored region. But we’ll be telling you more about that later!

We’re planning to host events at 2pm (and, if needed, 5pm) every day.  If you would really LOVE to give a presentation, but can’t make that time, contact us and we will see if we can fit you in.

We are happy to host talks, presentations, interviews, question and answer sessions.  It’s an opportunity for designers to share ideas, for people to meet their favourite creators, for communities to come together and talk about their culture and ideas.  We’re very open to hosting what YOU want to tell us about!

If you would like to be a part of our programme at the Expo, please complete the form below with your topic and preferred dates and times. We will try to fit in as many people as we can!

Join us today, Monday 21st July at 2pm SLT at the Designing Worlds studio in Garden of Dreams for the second (and final) part of our discussion about Second Life’s continued viability and the ways in which Linden Lab might attract existing communities to their new platform.

Our great panel of guests is present again – including Jessica Lyon, Project Manager of Firestorm, Jo Yardley, owner of 1920s Berlin, Maxwell Graf, owner of Rustica. JJ Drinkwater, Virtual and real life Librarian and Pathfinder Lester, Community Engagement specialist (and the ex-Pathfinder Linden).

We don’t talk about the technical possibilities of the new platform; instead we’ll be focus on what needs to be done to keep Second Life vibrant and alive … and, at the same time, what might persuade the residents of Second Life to make a commitment to a new environment – and some of the answers may be surprising!

Join us at 2pm for an important and fascinating show – make sure that you don’t miss it!

We have a great panel of guests who will be live in the studio with us – including Jessica Lyon, Project Manager of Firestorm (who will be fresh from her own earlier Question and Answer session with Oz and Peter Linden), Jo Yardley, owner of 1920s Berlin, Maxwell Graf, owner of Rustica. JJ Drinkwater, Virtual and real life Librarian and Pathfinder Lester, Community Engagement specialist (and the ex-Pathfinder Linden).

We won’t be talking about the technical possibilities of the new platform; instead we’ll be focussing on what needs to be donne to keep Second Life vibrant and alive … and, at the same time, what might persuade the residents of Second Life to make a commitment to a new environment – and some of the answers may be surprising!

But you will also have the opportunity to having your thoughts and ideas discussed by the panel, either by coming along and joining the live audience, or by posting your thoughts and ideas in comments on this post.

This show will be recorded and shown again on July 14th.
