- Looks like a really interesting programme starting in Jan 2014, pity it’s London-only but I guess that’s where all Alpha-ville stuff happens: “Alpha-ville EXCHANGE is a series of events designed to offer the London art, tech and creative communities the opportunity to connect, exchange ideas, get inspired and discover new talent.The concept “EXCHANGE” underlines the notion of crossing talents and further connecting the frontiers of artistic expression with design and technology.“
