Join us at the Gateway for the Kick Off Event of VWBPE 2021. This is a time to socialize and network with friends, old and new, while enjoying the lovely piano music of Ari (Arisia Vita). The Conference Planning Committees will share a few of the upcoming highlights. Executive Director, Phelan Corrimal, will officially start the conference with the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony. Be sure to find the retro rocket and pick up your swag bag with teleport HUD, schedules and other important information.
The VWBPE Annual Parade is a great way to start our social events! This year our “parade” will be an Art Walk. We will tour Gallery 360 which surrounds the Social Spaceport. You won’t want to miss viewing art work by SL creators from around the world…maybe even the universe!
After the Art Walk we will gather in the Social Building for a Celestial Space Party with fabulous tunes and dancing with DJ Coz Okelly. This is a great way to greet old friends and make new ones. Put on your Rocket Boots – I mean dancing shoes, and come join the fun!
You won’t want to miss this word guessing game, where one player has to describe a given word in local text chat while the other players are guessing the described word in text chat. The trick is that there are five forbidden words you may not use! This is an easy, engaging, and fast paced game! Think Taboo! Come join the fun!
Join us at the Social Spaceport to hear the talented, live musician, Suzen Juel Resistance. Suzen was one of the first female musicians in the beginning of SL performances. She brings years of talent, experiences and emotions that embed themselves deep into her songs. You are bound to hear something you enjoy in her repertoire of Blues, Americana, and Folk songs.
SL is all about doing what you can’t do IRL (in real life), like: putting on a pair of anti-gravity shoes and exploring one of the moons of Lyra Prime. This is going to be fun and easy, even for beginner spacewalkers. So wear something comfortable for walking upside down and come join the fun!
Most SLer’s love to dress up! Put on your favorite, retro 50’s outfit and join us at the venue. Guys may want to wear dungarees, button down shirts and high tops. Gals your favorite summer dance dress with heels would be fashionable. Make yourself low lag by removing scripts and huds. You will have a chance to take photos with friends and mingle with other guests before the show begins. Come early to get some ice cold drinks and snacks, then sit back and enjoy the show!
Speakers: Lissena (Wisdomseeker), Ageless Mind Project, Inc.; Thuja Hynes; Fran Koolhoven
The Whole Brain Health (WBH) team employs a sophisticated set of tools (our Meta-Brain) to promote events, draw public participation, track and analyze participant data, and to directly engage participants. We maintain a thorough public internet presence. In SL we use the latest free techniques for automated notices. On-sim tools include a unique visitor counter and a critical security system. We provide dozens of methods to navigate and explore, and hundreds of opportunities for interaction and feedback.
- Participants will learn about innovative tools for visitor attraction, tracking and engagement
- Participants can share their own needs and ideas about using and improving the tools presented
Accessibility: Speakeasy HUD tool
Builders and Guessers Welcome! Prim Quiz is the SL version of pictionary, but rather than drawing a sketch of something, you have to build it with prims! A willing builder will be given the name of something to build. If you are a new builder you can still take part as you can guess and then pass the building part onto someone else! Come have some fun with us!
Join us as we reflect upon the highlights of the conference, with closing remarks from Phelan Corrimal and other VWBPE Committee Chairs. This event is hosted by the one and only Pooky Amsterdam, CEO of Pooky Media. The 2021 Thinkerer Award Recipient will be named during this ceremony. Come celebrate your experiences with your colleagues from this amazing conference.
