LABoral has set up a blog aimed at giving a new vision of the activity at the Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial in Gijón. Hosted on the Centre’s website, LABlog is a collaborative project by independent bloggers interested in art and new cultural forms.

Through their writings in this space, week by week the reader can discover a more personal vision of the activities at LABoral and contemporary art practices from the different perspectives of the eight participants in the project. Laura Cano, José Luis Calderón, Nuria García, Semíramis González, Montaña Hurtado, Marta Lorenzo, Román Torre and Naiara Valdano handle the content and inform on everything that is happening at LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial.

At a time when cultural institutions and museums are reinventing themselves and searching for new ways of communicating, LABlog highlights LABoral’s commitment to the collaborative model and the direct language of blogs in its aim to establish closer ties with its audiences.
