A Carnival of the Arts in Second Life

The Dirty Grind, the open arts community founded by  jasmine0alaya and her partner, Ian McConach marks its anniversary in June 2016, and in celebration will be hosting another  Carnival of the Arts III. The event will take place from Wednesday, June 15th through Sunday June 19th inclusive. and will encompass live music and performance and  visual art.

The featured artist for the event is Bloo Ansar, and those participating in the Artist Row are: Winston Ackland, Kiesta Aljon, Bloo Ansar, Suzen Juel, JudiLynn India, Solana Python and Toysoldier Thor.

In addition, the celebrations will also see the official opening of The Movement Lounge in the basement of The Dirty Grind theatre.

The Dirty Grind has a great community spirit, and is a place I’ve visited numerous times, both to write about in this blog and simply to enjoy. Steeped in music, and with a strong support for art, it is a great place to explore – so why not find a little time over the next few days to hop over to wish them a happy anniversary?
