The 1920s Berlin Project celebrates its 8th anniversary!

Standard

I can’t believe that it has been 8 years since that evening in 2009 when I opened my club and had our first little 1920s Berlin themed party in a tiny skybox.
I didn’t expect much of it, I had only been in SL for a week when I started building and I had no idea what I was doing.
But the theme somehow managed to attract the right crowd and within no time a vibrant community of creative, fun, interesting and exciting people started to grow and populate my simplistic pile of prims.
This in turn motivated me and soon I wanted more than a little square with a cinema, shops and club floating high up in the sky.
So I started to improve my building skills, organised more events, did more research and slowly but surely a themed skybox became a neighbourhood and eventually a real city that would withstand the test of time.

It is impossible to explain how much the 1920s Berlin project means to me and I am always touched and excited to hear that it also means a lot to so many others.

On the 30th of May 2017 we’re celebrating the 8th (!) anniversary of our sim and we’re going to celebrate with a week of events!

We hope you’ll visit and be part of the celebrations, if you don’t want to change your avatar or outfit, don’t worry.
We end our celebrations with a Relaxed Rules day where we have no dress code and everyone (but naked people, Nazis and naked nazis) is welcome.

Below you’ll find the schedule of events.
Please note that certain events, times and dates may still be subject to change and others may still be added.
Feel free to join us in the Berlin group chat or join our Facebook group to stay up to date.
