LABORAL CENTRO DE ARTE Y CREACION INDUSTRIAL - GIJON
UNTIL 17 JANUARY 2011

For the third year running, LABoral has organised SummerLAB, an annual event conceived to bring young digital creators and developers together with the purpose of working on collaborative projects. After an open international call, eight projects were chosen to be developed over a period of ten days during the month of July at Plataforma 0_LABoral Centro de Producción.

The call made a special appeal for projects engaged with: the use of mobile technologies; the generation of resources for the community of creators; the contribution of innovative solutions in creativity and technology with social applications or committed with the environment.

SummerLAB 2010 fosters research and development of production within the framework of mobility, mobile technologies and the way in which they generate new processes and narratives.

Mediateca Expandida. SummerLAB_Showcase gives creators and developers a chance to present and document their work in a new exhibition context, revolving around four of LABoral’s main areas of interest: education, research, production and exhibition.

LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial is a space for artistic exchange. It is set up with the purpose of establishing an effective alliance between art, design, culture, industry and economic progress and the goal of becoming a space for interaction and dialogue between art, new technologies and industrial creation. It throws a special spotlight on production, creation and research into art concepts still being defined.
