Following a lot of work in the background at UWA in RL. The UWA presence in SL has been extended through 31st July 2017.
Thank you to the many who have written in to UWA central providing support as well as the many who have worked to preserve a lot of the art and grounds in film.
Thanks especially to the Desinging Worlds team with AviewTV and TreetTV for their incredible work on their tribute programme, and to Secret Rage (AKA Vee Marie) for her excellent videos documenting nearly everything on the 4 UWA sims. See links below.
4 of the 5 sims will remain part of the UWA cluster, and the 5th SIM (UWA Virtlantis) is being taken over by the University of San Jose & Sonicity Fitzroy, who have been occupying it for the last couple of years.
We've been getting a lot of attention for the impending changes. Saffia Widdershins and Elrik Merlin interviewed JayJay and FreeWee for the current edition of Designing Worlds. Included are tributes from numerous artists who have participated in our programs over the years:
