A Call For Artists: Harlem in Montmartre - The French Connection

Harlem in Montmartre - The French Connection

The notecard came to me via the Second Culture group. I spoke briefly to Ms. Vaher early this morning and popped over to take a look around the Virtual Harlem site. I landed just outside an SL version of the legendary Apollo Theater.  I hadn't expected it to be a replica of the famous theater but did find it to be a very good build as were the surrounding buildings. With limited time I plan to back to explore further. In the mean time, her note follows:

Call to Artists: Harlem in Montmartre - The French Connection.

During the 1920’s and 30’s a dynamic community of African Americans settled in Paris introducing jazz to the French while the Harlem Renaissance was taking off across the Atlantic.

Seeking musicians, visual artists and writers to participate in events for the month of February on both Virtual Harlem and Virtual Montmartre sims, which have received international recognition.

To participate or for more information: contact Indea Vaher or email VirtualHM.SL@gmail.com
