THE DICKENS PROJECT SL

The 2018 Edition: 
November 30 - December 30

Now in its sixth year, Seanchai Library presents THE DICKENS PROJECT to celebrate the work of one of the masters of 19th Century literature, whose humanistic voice continues to be a relevant one in our everyday culture.

This year's Project will once more be hosted on Linden Endowment for the Arts Region 7 featuring music, dance, and plenty of stories, plus some fun new things that we are excited to tell you more about.

BRAND NEW this year at the Dickens Project :

URCHINS IN DICKENS' LONDON
You are invited you to participate in a new way: become an urchin in Dickens' London!
What Is This? It is a game that combines elements of the SL hunt, free form (and optional) role play, and an invitation to create (and share) your story. Click Here for more information and to begin your Urchin journey.

INTERACTIVE SOUNDSCAPE:  
This year, you can even further immerse yourself in Dickens' timeless holiday ghost story. Miss the live story tours?  You can enjoy sounds of the story anytime by grabbing a sound hud at the landing point, and enjoying selected sounds and text from the A Christmas Carol as you journey through Past, Present, and Yet to Come.



Seanchai Library and The Dickens Project would also like to thank Vivian Williams of Voyager Recordings and Publications for allowing us to use the recording of "Sir Roger De Coverley" from their album "Fiddle Tunes of the Lewis & Clark Era" this year. Look for it at Fezziwig's Warehouse in the Christmas Past Docks area.
