Open a Dialogue in the Dark

In our everyday life, we rely very much on our eyes for orientation and to make sense of the world around us. But what if there is nothing to be seen? Dialogue in the Dark allows the visitors to explore an invisible landscape and urban living areas while being safely guided by a blind guide to learn not only about their own abilities, but as well the ones that lie in a life without sight. The visitors explore the unseen, and learn to see in darkness: An idea emerges, composed out of sounds, scents, wind, textures and temperatures and arises inner pictures in the people’s mind. At the same time, this reversal of roles creates a transformative experience that allows a new form of communication about disabilities and inclusion in our society, based on mutual trust and understanding.

Dialogue in the Dark creates meaningful encounters between people with and without disabilities, while allowing the visitors to discover their own strengths and curiosity, fostering empathy and promoting diversity. This unforgetable experience is for all public; individuals and groups of visitors age 8 and older.

What are the space requirements?

The standard modular exhibition includes 3 different environments (park, city and bar) and requires a minimum of 200 sqm (2200 sqf):

We are happy to adapt and extend the exhibition layout to larger and more complex space requirements. Several of our Dialogue in the Dark exhibitions worldwide comprise also wonderful examples of integrating local character and culture into the scenario, ranging from a bobsled ride during the Olympic Winter Games in Italy to a ride on a Tuk Tuk in Bangkok. For these extended scenarios, a space of 300-400m² (3200 – 4400 sqf) is required.
