DiD Taipei was set up at 2011 by Swan Chen (Chairman) to initiate our social mission: To help visually impaired obtain a fair and friendly working environment, to enhance social empathy and to become the foundation of social harmony and ethnical integration.
Taiwan has been an early adopter of legislation to protect the rights and interests of people with disabilities, hoping to create a society with equal rights, peace, and mutual assistance. In reality, however, people with disabilities still encounter many misunderstandings and obstacles in the public eye. Even well-educated people with visual impairments still encounter major barriers to finding employment.
Within the Dialogue in the Dark concept, we developed our own workshops and other activities to facilitate our social mission. The wide range of our products include Theme Workshops, Carnival Workshops, Empathy Workshops for age 11+, Escape Rooms, Chinese Tea in the Dark, and Concerts in the Dark. All those activities show how the alleged VI’s weaknesses become strengths and enhance the public’s empathy and acknowledgement.
