LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial, Gijón, ES
Located in Gijón, Asturias, LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial was opened in 2007. LABoral is a centre for the exchange and cooperation between art, science, technology, society and the creative industries. LABoral functions as an open lab for technological, social and cultural exchange based on a cross‐cutting approach between fields, communities and practices. Based on this premise, LABoral offers itself as a node for integrated research distributed in its diverse programs of production, exhibition, education and communication.
As opposed to the traditional institutional models, LABoral intends a more organic structure designed to manage the need to produce, distribute and communicate contemporary culture to all audiences and aims to become a platform for emerging forms of contemporary creation.
