Exhibitions and Workshops to explore the unseen

In Dialogue in the Dark exhibitions, visitors are led by blind guides through a specially constructed and completely darkened space. Conveying the characteristics of a familiar environment such as a park, a street or a bar, a daily routine turns into a new experience. A reversal of roles is created as sighted people are torn from the familiar, losing the sense they rely on most – their sight. Blind people guide them, providing security while transmitting a world without pictures. 

The visually impaired guides open a visitors’ eyes in the dark, showing that a world without sight is not poorer, just different. Dialogue in the Dark business workshops provide for this change of perspective in a very individual setting. Conducted by blind coaches and facilitators, participants are guided through a set of experiential learning activities and experience a re-inforcement of their collaborative mind-set and emotional intelligence. Exhibitions and business workshops worldwide aim at provoking a change of perspective for the participant. Both concepts provide employment for visually impaired people on a worldwide scale.
