—————————————————–ALPHA-VILLE 6 OCTOBER 2012———————————————-
Alpha-ville presents a full day celebrating the richness of the digital culture in Hackney on Saturday 6th October 2012. Head over to Hackney Central/London Fields area to discover the day, use the journey planner to get travel information. If you make it early enough we recommend that you visit the lovely local market Broadway Market. The events take place in 2 venues: Hackney Picturehouse and Hackney Empire. As you can see from the picture below, both venues are across the road, both in Mare Street, just by the Hackney Town Hall.


At 12pm we open the events at Hackney Picturehouse with an interactive installation: Blabla, that will be open all day for free at the Picturehouse lobby. At 2pm, the programme will kick off with Alpha-ville SCREENING at the Hackney Picturehouse, Screen 3 with:
