FULL PROGRAMME OF EVENTS BELOW
In Lorys Lane's words:
2Lei in Second Life is a collaborative project between some groups in Second Life, which began in 2010 with the aim to raise awareness and disseminate events related to the “International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women".
Virtual artists, gallery owners, musicians and the cultural figures of Second Life are invited to share the common message of solidarity to the women via their particular Art. For the fifth year in a row, a committee of volunteers has chosen to devote time, energy and ideas together to realize projects and activities to say "No violence against women in the world."
2Lei will go beyond the canonical virtual boundaries of recent years, through a number of projects already in the works, and through you. Beyond the frontiers of Second Life, 2Lei seeks to become like a spider's web that is woven slowly, but which becomes indestructible, rooted at every point.
On June 2014 "2Lei in Second Life" committee took part in SLB11 celebration with the installations "Revise the next": 3 photos by Paola Mills, and a mesh sculpture composed by Moore Tone, with creative contributions of all members; this is why the mesh was load by 2Lei Resident, the official avatar of the committee.
The central figure, symbol of uniformity contemporary, evolves into a future dominated by the differences that co-exist and work together, generating positive feelings.
Respect, trust and equality - our empire of the mind - are the focus of the installation, but rather than expect them, we would try to get them, educating and training the future. The intent of the 2Lei initiatives was always to create, day after day, a new brick to build a world fit for individual without distinction, nor prevarication, but based on positive feelings.
2Lei 2014: Rebirth... together!
This year’s theme is "Rebirth… together!". We cannot just denounce: we must dare to hope, to dream, to act, to make the dream come true and springboard for new dreams. Dreams in which men and women cooperate together to build a more just, more healthy society, in which violence does not represent the instrument upon which to convey anger, frustration, fear, and aggression.
We wish every woman’s heart beat be as strong as the drum of life. No woman will be forgotten or left behind. The "Rebirth" marks the passage of the works of artists who are exhibiting in these spaces, and the performers who will take turns on stage. The program is rich and detailed, and offers many insights. Now we want to talk about "rebirth". A rebirth towards a world where people can live, breathe, and dream without the fear of having to defend themselves. We are reborn together in front of each painting, opera, photograph, theater or musical show that a fragment of this kaleidoscope of images, desires, dreams, passions, and every project of rebirth involves. Primarily this involves the denunciation of what is evil, of what is burning, what clip wings, and cuts short lives. Then, after the denunciation, comes the dream: the work, the strength to believe it, and to make it happen together. "TOGETHER" is the keyword of a true renaissance. And we will be the first to give testimony. Men and women who, together, believe in this project and have put in place. Thank you for sharing this journey with us.
