INCORE in Second Life

The INCORE in Second Life project seeks to bring new technologies to bear on peacebuilding work.INCORE in SECOND LIFE IMAGE  INCORE has built, in consultation with the School of Computing and Intelligent Systems, an INCORE centre in Second Life - a virtual 3D world used by over 10 million people worldwide.

Our Virtual World

INCORE in Second Life seeks to introduce visitors to the main aspects of the conflict in and about Northern Ireland. Video screens show short films explaining the background to the political conflict, as well as outlining the significance of peace walls, murals and flags in the Northern Ireland conflict.

To complement this we have built a virtual peace wall, a mural gallery and flag park. An INCORE building, which provides information on our work, as well as seminar rooms for virtual discussion, is also featured. A section of this building is dedicated to the promoting the work and activities of ARK.
