Welcome to The Akipelago, the most vibrant hub of Second Life’s thriving cultural scene. Comprising four interconnected sims – Akimitsu, Akijima, Akimori, and Akiniwa – The Akipelago offers a space for artists to collaborate, inspire each other, and develop their craft in a supportive and dynamic community.

At the heart of The Akipelago is its dedication to promoting and supporting artists. All tips received at its venues go directly to the artists, helping to fund their growth and development within the scene. This unique approach is made possible by the vision of its founder, Akiko Kinoshi, who built and owns the island, as well as the dedicated efforts of event director Haiku Quan and PR and promotion specialist Violet Boa.

The result is a melting pot of creativity and inspiration, where artists can experiment, learn from each other, and develop new ideas and approaches.
