LABoral Art and Industrial Creation Centre is an exhibition centre for art, science, technology and advanced visual industries. But it is also a venue for artistic and technological production, research and training; and for the dissemination of new forms of art and industrial creation. To fulfil these goals, laboral will be a space for exchange between different art disciplines; a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary centre and a dynamic environment for creators / works / researchers / teachers / audiences.
Organically, the centre depends on a non-profit foundation comprising corporations and institutions, founded expressly to ensure the intellectual and financial feasibility of the centre. The project was developed under the auspices of the Government of the Principality of Asturias, promoter of the conversion of part of the building originally designed as workshops for the former Gijon vocational training centre. The refurbishment of the 14338 square metres of functional space for the centre required an investment in excess of €11 million.
Located in Gijon, Asturias, at around three kilometres from the city centre.
