The Dickens Project will celebrate its fifth year in Second Life on Linden Endowment for the Arts Region 7 in an expanded edition of the annual event that features "something for almost everyone." Staged on a full region this year for the very first time, the traditional 10 day event that began in 2012 as a celebration of the Dickens Centennial will be open to residents for five weeks, beginning November 25th and closing December 30th, on LEA 7 http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA7/114/149/21
The celebration will feature live music, weekly DJ sessions, stage performances by Guerilla Burlesque, and Misfit Dance & Performance Art in addition to Seanchai's traditional spoken word presentations from the canon of author Charles Dickens (1812-1870) centered on, but not limited to, his novella A Christmas Carol. Carriage and balloon tours, skating, sledding and a few surprises are among the other features planned for LEA 7. The Community Virtual Library has designed an interactive information center on the times and work of Charles Dickens which can also be explored.
