The first details have been revealed for resident run Second Life 13th birthday celebrations (SL13B) which starts with a week-long of live performances from 12pm SLT on Sunday 19th June through until Sunday 26th June 2016. The sims will remain open for viewing until 3rd July 2016.
This year’s theme for the SL12B Community Celebration is “The Shared Adventure“.
SL13B is a community-led, community-made celebration made up of builders, performers, volunteers and participants–and of course, celebrators!
The SL13B regions (17 new sims) have arrived on the grid and you can expect in the weeks ahead building/transformation work will be starting. It will be great to see the visual map changes over the weeks/months ahead. 🙂
Second Life officially turns 13 years old on Thursday 23rd June 2016.
