Urbis in Second Life

Working in partnership with Manchester Digital Development Agency and Clicks and Links,  in 2008 Urbis launched itself in the 3D world of virtual reality, known as  Second Life.

Urbis was located on Manchester Island. Here virtual visitors could explore all of  Urbis’ exhibitions past and present, chat and interact with other like-minded visitors. Visitors came  to the virtual Urbis from all across the globe including the USA and Japan, helping Urbis to spread its message internationally.

Urbis also ran events in Second Life. Complete with its own dance floor, the Hacienda launch night was streamed live into the virtual world. The event An Evening with Peter Hook proved to be hugely successful and was promoted both in Second Life and the real world. It was attended by 30 avatars who were delighted to be able to pose questions to the speakers at the end of the evening.

You can find Urbis in Second Life at co-ordinates 234/133/24
