Back by Popular Demand – Talks in the Expo Theatre

After Tuesday’s very popular talk by residents of Bellisseria in the Theatre on Hope 3, we have rescheduled our talks for the weekend.

First of all we have the return of our Bellisserian friends to talk about life on the continent, in terms of design, community and events.

Then, on Sunday 21st March, at 2pm SLT, we will have our final Talk, a Show and Tell event, where where creators can bring their work and display and discuss it with the audience. These events are always very popular – and more so this time, perhaps, because we will also be releasing the names of the winners of the Home & Garden Expo Decorating Contest.

Upcoming Talks at the Home and Garden Expo: Today with the Moles at 2pm And Kaerri at 5pm!

We’ve had a fascinating range of talks in the Theatre on Hope 3 in the first half of the Home and Garden Expo, and we’re now coming up to the final week, with some great interviews lined up.

Today, Friday 12th March, some of the Moles from the Linden Department for Public Works will be joining Saffia at 2pm SLT to talk about their work for Linden Lab with events, games and, of course, builds such as the continent of Bellisseria!
