Inner-galactic Pop Up Research Station will be a  portal to documenting our legacy, giving emerging curators and artists, new to the world of creative place making, a “Tool Kit” that has already been 20 years in the making, researched, developed, and implemented by artists who have carved out niches and built new communities from empty storefront to monthly art walks.
"Creative Conversations" will launch its broadcast new podcast on Saturday October 10th, with our Imagination Station, using BlogTalkRadio.

She is a visual and environmental installation artist.  She examines cultural signs and symbols and their use or interpretation, she believes that objects in the public sphere serve to communicate and reinforce certain cultural narratives, hierarchies, and social mythologies.

    In terms of her social practice Alpha looks at how the city influences art, and how artists transform the city by contributing to civic dialogue and quality of life.
