> Expenses Activity 2010 (pdf)


The project, defined as an space for experimentation, creation, learning and diffusion of videogames, has the purpose of developing a variety of colaborative actions during the next months. To that effect, a work group will be created for exploring -in a colective, interdisciplinary and collaborative way- the use of software and hardware tools, as well as metodologies of creation that are related to videogames and its applications in other contexts (culture, music, art, education, etc.)

To emphasize this multidisciplinary and collaborative nature, PlayLab will be open to the participation of anyone who is interested in exploring the creative posibilities of videogames.
