BeAnotherLab, in collaboration with BeAnotherLab Berlin will run a workshop offering insight into state of the art research on virtual reality, embodiment, multisensory integration and the impact these bodies of knowledge can have on understanding and promoting pro-social behaviours. The workshop provide festival goers with the possibility of experiencing an embodied VR set up that will allow them to put themselves in someone else's shoes.

BeAnotherLab and BeAnotherLab Berlin is currently conducting investigation in the field of social neuroscience, looking in particular at how embodied virtual reality might be used to trigger vicarious pain, which is the capacity to feel pain when others are in pain.
