One Billion Rising in Second Life is a twenty-four hour one day event in support of the international event One Billion Rising, which aims to build awareness of the violence that women and girls across the globe are subjected to. In Second Life, across four regions there were art installations and exhibitions, poetry sessions, storytelling events, live dance performances, twenty four hours of music – and also information kiosks that shared information about organisations devoted to promoting justice for women across the globe, and stories of events that were happening around the world.

In today’s show, we look at some of the elements that went into the event – the amazing video that was shot ahead of the event, part of the particle display by Tansee that was given at the event, one of the dances that were performed in the beautiful Sunflower Theatre, and a full performance of a special play by Bhelanna Blaze, performed by the Cold Shot Ensemble – and, of course, the beautiful and thought provoking art installations that were located all around the perimeter of the event.
