All EMOLABS workshops are personalised to meet specific needs and can have a maximum of 10 participants per session. They are based on a dual approach: a theoretical introduction to the concepts of emotion and morality (around 1 hour and 30 minutes); and an experimental component (2 to 3 hours). While the introductory part is the same for all workshops, there are, at this moment, three methodological approaches within the experimental scheme:


Sensorial Workshop

Explores how different sensorial cues, such as taste, sight, touch, smell, and hearing affect our emotions and moral judgments, both positively and negatively.


Narratorial Workshop

Examines behaviour using narrative, being it in an already published form, through personal writing exercises on the day by participants, or by testing more gut-level reactions to certain words that might provoke pleasant or unpleasant responses.


Rasa Workshop

Focuses on a more perfomative approach to emotions and morality by adapting the rasa box method developed by Richard Schechner in the 1980s which is based on eight core emotions from the Sanskrit text Natyasastra, explored individually or in combination with each other.
