Who: Anyone and everyone is welcome, especially those who consider themselves creators, makers, artists, builders. 

What: "Where failure is not an option... it is a requirement"- Figment Executive Director David Koren.

ALPHA was launched in 2013 as an event that gives participants a safe space to experiment with interactive and participatory projects. ALPHA is a a place to launch new projects, to fail, to collaborate, to improve and refine existing projects, to dive in and create something new and unexpected, to reinvent yourself completely as a creator. ALPHA 2024 will be our tenth ALPHA event.
