Linden Lab closing down LEA regions on 1st September


Breaking News

Sad news to report today is that Linden Lab will be closing down the LEA regions in Second Life on Sunday 1st September 2019 after no agreement was reached to save them. It’s going to be big loss going forward for arts in Second Life.

The news was sent out today to the LEA groups inworld on Friday 30th August. I personally hope Linden Lab will start a new program in the near future with a new vision going forward.


A final farewell message from the LEA Committee – 30th August 2019

Linden Endowment for the Arts in its current form comes to an end on August 31st and the remaining sims will be taken offline by Linden Labs on September 1st.

We would like to thank all those who came to support this program and the many artists who took part in it as Artists in Residence, Core grant holders or as collaborators with others in the many projects hosted on the LEA regions or took advantage of the Sandbox . The creativity demonstrated by the artists of Second Life at LEA was truly extraordinary and made the program a huge success from its inception in 2011.

We hope that Linden Labs will institute a new program to support the Arts in Second Life in the near future.

Thank you everyone

The LEA Committee

    If you a lover of the arts grab your bikes and ride over to the LEA regions for a LAST TIME!
    Because tomorrow there will be a parking lot. 😮
