In Dialogue in the Dark visitors are connected through the strong emotionality of the experience, something which gives rise to mutual support and a shared basis for communication. Social distance disappears and solidarity is born: people are not judged and labeled quickly but are given the chance to express themselves and their values during conversation. Participants in the exhibition develop empathy & understanding of people with disabilities and gain an expanded awareness of human variety.
Due to the dissemination of Dialogue in the Dark Exhibitions around the world over 9 million people’s perspectives toward “otherness” may have ben changed. Also over a thousand visual -impaired and blind people have been given a stage to enter into dialogue and foster empathy with an audience.
