“The Autism Awareness Project 2010:  So many people who have Autism seem to visit me on Tiatopia Island.  They support all of our events and donate to the sim…they are our friends…it only seemed the right thing to do…”

At Tiatopia Island, between January 3rd and The 9th, we will be holding an Autism Awareness Event.
This event will be composed of a series of smaller events that are fun for all, and will raise funds for Autism both in and out of Second Life.

========
= EVENTS =
========
POETRY BUILD:  The biggest event of the entire week is one that blends poetry and 3D SL Building.  Poems that have been collected from SL’s poets are displayed and then the SL builder interprets the poetry using SL prims.  This build will last for 4 days and will culminate into 2 days of voting.  People will vote for their favorite duo by donation.  All proceeds will go to Autism Research and Awareness Education.  The winners will recieve high quality donated prizes from vendors all over the grid.  The winners will also have their poem and build on display at Tiatopia’s Fine Arts Gallery and Sculpture Garden.

ART AUCTION:  SL’s Art Scene is just as lively as it’s music scene.  We have gathered donations of 2d Art Work both SL and RL original pieces from all over the grid.  People may come and bid on the artwork the piece going to the highest bidder.  All proceeds from the Auction will go directly to Autism Research and Autism Awareness Education.

LECTURES, STORYSHARE:  What would an awareness project be without those who are expert in the field to share and discuss what Autism is and how it effects so many.  We are also inviting people to discuss their stories of how Autism has touched their life and those SLifers who are willing to share their story with us will have their story added to an SL book we are creating on Autism, with some poems and also pictures.

POETRY READINGS AND STORYTELLING:  We will be hosting a number of poetry readings and storytelling events during the week.

LIVE MUSIC, DJ EVENTS:  Contests, HOURS of music with a line-up of SL’s Finest and Top Live Musicians and Performers, Themed out days like Country and Mardi Gras, Classical Arts Day and World Music Day…Tiatopia prides itself on having the finest singers and performers the SL grid has to offer…This week will be EPIC!

We have a lot of little surprises planned throughout the week as well.  The staff at Tiaopia Island is working round the clock to make sure this is as far reaching as it can be.  Our goal is to educate one person at a time about Autism and to use our world (SL) to do it in.

  2. Autism Awareness is essential. I wish more parents, specially the ones without access to ABA therapy, knew they could access solid, affordable, science based information regarding their child’s autism treatment from innovative providers like rethink autism http://bit.ly/6s1G3J
