PlayLab: Laboratory of experimentation with video games**

Deadline: *November 25, 2009 *

Call for the presentation of proposals to be carried out within the 
collaborative production workshop that will take place in Medialab-Prado 
(Madrid, Spain) on January (21 to 24) and February (4 to 7), 2010.

PlayLab aims to explore the context of games and video games as a space 
for creativity, experimentation, learning and reflection. It also aims 
to create an environment that leads to collaborative work in which 
different disciplines come together.

PlayLab's activities are proposed as an open and participatory research 
process from which one can approach video games, a phenomenon that is 
becoming more extensive and influent in Contemporary Society, and 
explore its critical potential, its learning possibilities and its 
capacity to create social spaces that go beyond the purely commercial 
and standardized. PlayLab is also interested in the history of games and 
video games as it examines its possible genealogies and studies its 
social, cognitive and psychological effects characteristic of video 
games today.

Check the call guidelines and submit your project before *November 25, 
2009. *No entry fees.*
