Parallax - by definition - is the apparent displacement or the difference in apparent direction of an object as seen from two different points of view.

In this event, we will look at ideas that are presented at other people’s point of views, recognise that they could be different from ours - and we will see everyone with new understanding again. It is a great learning experience to be able to understand that it is the combination of different point of views and positions that allow us to discover more possibilities.
