New mass of regions added east of of Bellisseria


During the past 24 hours the lab have added roughly 96 new regions east of the Bellisseria continent which are currently closed for public access. It’s believed this new mass could be the new log cabin regions which Linden Lab have been talking about recently.

When you zoom into these new regions there are many cloned groups of regions and most them have been named now. Thousands of new Linden homes will be available very soon.

See below for screenshots that I took today.

These new regions could be released next week or the week after. I’ll post more updates when newer developments happen.

LEA Regions Officially Goes Offline


LEA regions offline as of 4th September 2019

This morning all of the LEA regions have now officially gone offline which is really sad news. It’s a real shame nothing was saved or continued under new management. This is such a blg loss to the Second Life community.

I hope along with many others that Linden Lab could start a new LEA 2.0 program in the near future. Maybe something might happen in the 2020s. I think Second Life desperately needs a version of it back.

What do you think ?

If anything new develops with LEA 2.0 I’ll be sure to blog about it.

Farewell LEA đŸ˜¦

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
