The Linden Endowment of the Arts (LEA) have announced round ten this week and for those that don’t know the LEA Land Grant program seeks to promote the arts in Second Life through a six month land grant. Land grants are expected to be completed and then to be open to the public within the six month grant period.
The Linden Endowment of the Arts is an official Linden Community Partnership program whose purpose is to help new artists, cultivate art in SL, and foster creativity, innovation, and collaboration within the art community.

There is no one ‘right’ project that qualifies for a land grant. All types of art builds are considered, including immersive builds, highly technical and scripted work, and projects embracing collaborative, curatorial, or education projects. ANYONE has a chance at getting a sim, provided you can demonstrate that you have an idea for a great project and that you are able to complete it in the 6-month grant period.
Recipients will also be expected to present at least one event at some point within their residency. This could be an art opening, or it could be lectures or demonstrations. It could be an ongoing event, as well.
