Human senses play a vital role in shaping our understanding of“reality” and sculpting individual identities as we navigate the world. In anera when humans' relationship with nature is facing unprecedented challenges,understanding and reconnecting with nature through our senses is vital.

The Ágape offers a unique multidisciplinary, immersive, and embodied experiencethat reconnects us with the beauty of our own sensory nature by exploring theintricate sensory mechanisms that make us human. By delving into the profoundinterplay between our senses and the psyche, participants are encouraged toappreciate the beauty and complexity of our own nature throughmultidisciplinary, immersive, and embodied experiences that blur the boundariesof art and neuroscience.

The Ágape promotes interdisciplinary understanding, fosters a deeper sense ofappreciation, care, and responsibility for the environment by embodyingknowledge as a collective and transformative practice, and builds a sense ofcommunity among participants.
