BURN2 Santalarity 2015: “Great Things Come in Small Packages”

BURN2 Santalarity 2015 will be opening on Saturday 12th December through until Sunday 13th December 2015. The theme is “Great Things Come in Small Packages” and the event will be held at the Burning Man regions in Second Life. See the press release here.

Like a fable borne upon a mist of time, a magical, mysterious transformation is wrought upon the ancient dry lake bed we know as the playa. When the mist clears you see an alpine wonderland of mountains, hills and valleys.

Oh, but that is not all! As you draw in for a closer look, you notice something incredible: everything is small in size. You are surrounded by miniature villages and diminutive trains, with LIlliputian creatures and beings populating the scene. But don’t let their small sizes fool you – things are rarely as they appear.

Doesn’t that just stir up all sorts of things in your mind? Petites, Tinies, Micros..miniature camps and mini-mutant vehicles, the world goes small! Of course, we’ll have a fun little Burn, too. You are invited to participate!

Tinies, petites and other small avatar creatives are especially invited to be a part of this event, to build, DJ and perform.

How to Apply!
