About ESC 17

The Polish Skeptics’ Club in cooperation with the Czech Skeptics’ Club Sisyfos is holding the 17th biannual European Skeptics Congress 2017 in Wroclaw, Poland, September 22nd – 24th, under the auspices of ECSO European Council for Skeptical Organisations.

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.

CAPTURED MIND

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.
