We often consider knowledge to be something we learned at school, something based on language and, to a large extent, visually acquired by looking and reading. But we also acquire knowledge through our bodies, with the help of our senses.
We use our hands and nose to select the best fruit at the market. We use our sense of smell to decide which herbs to use when preparing a dish; we listen out to sense danger; and we rely on our intuition to decide whether we trust a person.
Marres’s workshops and challenges focus on these sensory experiences. The challenges can be used in schools or as team-building exercises. If you feel inspired by these challenges, feel free to send Ilse an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
