3rd april 2011 – 27th may 2012

The WORD LABORATORY is a space for research, experimentation and promotion of literary creativity made up of laboratory activities, meetings with creators and awards

Conceptualized by El Gaviero Ediciones and produced by LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial, it aims to show that poetic language is a form of industrial creation transversal to other artistic disciplines that can be found in unexpected scenarios and within everyone’s reach in a playful and enjoyable way. .


  • Develop activities focused on recognizing the poetic and artistic value of the word.
  • Recognize poetic language in everyday acts.
  • Recognize the importance of orality and its public expression, beyond books or traditional recitation.
  • Adapt new technologies and lyrics in artistic productions.


The work in the laboratory will consist of 3 phases:

  • First phase: data collection, information and preparation of components or materials.
  • Second phase: experimentation, in this case it corresponds to the creation of the text, mixing the appropriate components prepared in the previous phase.
  • Third phase: public or expository presentation of the results. It is worth remembering that in the case of the arts in general, and poetry in particular, the mode of presentation is part of the result itself.

The work in the laboratory will be completed with the participants attending “master classes” by poet scientists, experts in alternative poetic production processes. These renowned specialists, in addition to showing their theories and explaining their creative process, will be able to evaluate the students’ work and serve as motivation for subsequent student productions.
