Marga Ferrer and a team of builders brought Portucalis United to life. As Marga said in her application, “”Our intended exhibit will lie under the physical representation of an atom. Each part of the atom will show the different fields where our community has a relevant work and role, both recognized in SL world since 2007: education, arts/culture, literature and social events. The whole atom is a metaphoric way to represent how people with different interests act all together seeking for the same goal: build and share content and skills enriching the world. It represents the living community and its unity as well as the recognition by peers. The atom appeals to science, culture, education, arts, imagination, unity and diversity. This is Portucalis.” Marga said, “Portucalis was built by friends for friends. Nothing we accomplished since 2007 would be possible if it weren’t for the people always supporting us and the efforts, work and persistence of all residents. The community spirit exists in Portucalis with bonds that go beyond language, nationality, species or other details. Friendship is what prevails and there are no strangers in Portucalis.”

Karupa Flow offers a beautiful collabortive art piece in “Get Into the Art.” Karupa’s application said, “My work in SL blends my RL art with SL builds – creating a living, breathing piece that invites participation – a collaboration between artist/art and anyone who happens by…. Unexpected collaborations occur when the user encounters my space – and is drawn to the art within.  (And I never know who to expect to show up!)” The front sign of the exhibit, signed by Karupa, says “Without collaboration with you, my work is invisible. How you interact with the piece, what it makes you think; the feelings it invokes is what uncovers its soul. Take your time, immerse yourself in the display: be aware.”

The Originals at SL7b

Harrie Skjellerup thought that music was the way people find “unexpected collaborations,” and showed this with her exhibit for “The ORIGINALS.” As she explained, “The ORIGINALS is a non profit group that produces a monthly live showcase of varying SL musicians performing their original music that we take to a different venue on the gird each month. We intend to create an exhibit that explains who we are, what live original music on the grid is all about, along with a series of prim displays for original musicians web links, promo info and bio’s. Also we will feature examples of the collaborative original work of many musicians in SL! Music brings us all together and SL is all about creating and having fun, original music is both!”

Find “The ORIGINALS” and get more information on the Visionary sim.

Jack Belvedere applied to talk about his group, the “Global Online Hockey Association.” He wrote that they are “a large sporting community with regular, active season play and additional large group activities.” Who would think of hockey in SL? Yet, here it is. Jack wrote about “Two collaborations: Dyz Warburton was a long time league member when the opportunity arose for him to collaborate with extending, improving and expanding this vibrant community. He was an experienced scriptor, unbeknownst to us, who volunteered his time and energy extensively over the last few years to hugely improve this Second Life experience. Additionally a very unexpected collaboration has occurred for GOHA this year with the formation of a CPP in a new, winter-themed area which Linden Lab community managers are planning to expand upon in the months to come. We’d love to kick off this soon-to-open collaboration with a spot at the birthday celebration.” Well here they are!

Check GOHA out on the Contrary sim at SL7B.
