London.- Taking place from 22nd to the 25th of September, the third edition of Alpha-ville Festival will spread across several venues in London, running alongside the London Design Festival and the Digital Design Weekend at V&A , and including venues such as Whitechapel Gallery, Rich Mix, Netil House, The Vortex, XOYO and Space Studios. This year’s theme explores the transition from digital to post-digital culture . It showcases an extensive programme of innovative and ground breaking work by some of the most influential international digital artists, aimed to investigate the intersection between art and technology, and the impact on both society and the creative practice. Through  social media, interactive art, open labs, meet-ups, talks, workshops, screenings, live music, visual performances and parties , Alpha-ville offers a new experience for a wide audience, both off and online, promoting interaction, participation and awareness of how we perceive and use digital and the impact on our lives – the post-digital era. The programme is divided into four strands: Innovation: Live: Screening: And Exchange.
