ALPHA focuses on supporting artists and interactive projects in every way we can. We expect to see creators demonstrating interactive projects in a wide variety of media and disciplines, in order to test them out and get support from other creators. We intend for everyone who comes to ALPHA to offer something to the community... a performance, a workshop, hosting a meet-up... to provide lots of opportunities for others to learn and for the community to interact and get to know each other. There is an effigy burn on the Saturday of ALPHA. Activities and events happen throughout the day and into the evening. Participants may or may not be wearing costumes.
