Introducing the LEA Land Grant

LEA Land Grant

The LEA committee is very excited to announce something that we have been working towards for quite a while now.  Essentially we have convinced Linden Labs and their stockholders to give us 20 sims for a year in order to support the arts in Second Life.  Below you will find the official announcement and application form to consider.  Shortly we will create the online application form and you can start to fill it out if you are interested.  The applications will be due by November 1st 2011.  Check the Linden Endowment for the Arts blog for updates.



 LEA Land Grant application:

The Linden Endowment for the Arts (LEA) has negotiated with Linden Labs to make available twenty new regions for the arts in Second Life. Four regions will be reserved for exhibitions curated from LEA sandbox art, and two will be allocated through a land rush.  Details will follow on those six regions.  Fourteen will be allocated by application.  These regions will be awarded to selected artists for a period of five months. After the completion of five months those regions will be transferred to a new set of awardees. Recipients can be considered for a second endowment of five months.

Choose a category you wish to apply for and write a 200 word description of what you plan to achieve over the endowment period.  Include a curriculum vitae or resume, and/or ways to see previous work (links to images, YouTube, slurl, websites).

Art organizations, patrons, or curators applying for a region should be able to show an active record of supporting the arts within Second Life or experience in first life that can be translated to the virtual world.
