AvatarFest is the celebration of the strength and diversity of the hypergrid user community.
AvatarFest 2017 will open its doors on September 23rd. Opening weekend will run until Sept. 24th, exhibits will be open until end of October.
For the third year in a row, AvatarFEST celebrates the the hypergrid user community. It is a celebration of what amateur, home users do on the hypergrid. Think of it a bit like “show and tell”. Other events are geared towards professional users for the sake of networking, this festival is geared towards home users with the intent of celebrating what we, the non-professional class, do in virtual worlds.
We are looking forward to have a showcase of talented artists, builders and OpenSim users again as well as some artist performances on our big stage. Personal creativity, people’s interests and hobbies and even some (select) group activities such as roleplay are the heart and soul of AvatarFest. Like last year, we will not be allowing any exhibits that promote any kind of commercial activity, hosting or that try to use Avatarfest as springboard for advertising outside services.
This year, the exhibits are taking center stage, with only a few performances on the opening weekend.
This year we will be having two days of events, six performances total (three each day). Unlike last year, we will be asking performers to submit applications through the AvatarFest website.
Applications are now active until August 15th.
Applications will be handled by Eryn Galen and Han Held, please be patient while we wade through them.
Whether you want to help greet, perform or share your creativity with the hypergrid at large, join us in celebrating the hypergrid and the folks who live out here.
Come and be a part of AvatarFest. We look forward to meeting you!
