You can participate by joining one of our test kitchen multisensory experiments, sitting down with us for a family meal where a practitioner invites us into their process, or by applying to become an affiliate researcher. Sign up to stay connected.

Our events, built on the metaphor of the kitchen, are tactile and collaborative–much like the act of cooking.

Test Kitchen: Multi-Sensory Writing with Nina Eidsheim
What if we listened to music with our tongue, feet, or skin? In this interactive event, we will experiment with multi-sensory experience of music. Engaging with a writing model from PEER Lab founder Nina Eidsheim can help us relate to our senses more fully, and deepen our relationship with music and ourselves.
