About ESC 17
In 2017, as we acknowledge the 120th anniversary of André-Jacques Garnerin first parachute jump, it is the time for the skeptic community to take a leap of faith out of the comfort of academic discussion into interaction with the public.
Is the world around us really as we perceive it to be?
What happens when our senses present us with conflicting stimuli?
How do our brains interpret these signals?
This travelling exhibition sets traps for your mind
and lets you catch it out as it plays clever tricks on you.

Congress will also include discussion panels on sensitive topics
Newly, the minds of the alternative scene will be invited to participate, making the ESC 2017 into a platform of much-needed communication and opening the door for further discussion
