It's time for the next round of the LEA Artist-in-Residence Land Grants! The LEA Land Grant program seeks to promote and nurture the arts in Second Life, through a six-month land grant to recipients.

LEA Theatre Grant

Theatre grants are available on a first come-first serve basis dependent on schedule availability, and are booked as one to two hour events (duration is flexible). Anyone may apply to use the theatre for arts programs such as music, drama, dance, group meetings, classes, film screenings, etc.


The theatre is a public venue, so any usage must be open to the public at large and comply with its moderate rating. Therefore, LEA reserves the right to decline scheduling for events that are political, violent, sexually based, charity fundraisers or those that are sales events.

LEA Core Sim Application

LEA is offering its core sims for shorter-term art exhibits or projects. We are looking for projects that utilize the many possibilities available in the virtual world. This is not limited to visual art; we encourage applications that are also collaborative efforts across the spectrum of the arts, including performance, music, and film.

Some Important Information:

  1. The 'core sims' are regions LEA1 through LEA9 (excluding LEA3 Welcome Area and LEA5 Sandbox).
  2. The Core Sim Grant is a 3-month grant.
  3. Extensions are possible, depending on factors including availability.

LEA AiR Land Grant

The LEA Land Grant is a program to distribute 20 regions (LEA10-LEA29) generously donated by Linden Lab.

These regions are to be used to promote art and artistic endeavors in Second Life.

Full sims of virtual land are made available to in-world artists through an application process. Application cycles will be announced through various LEA channels.  The AiR Land Grant is a 6 month grant.
