NOTE: OUR LOCATION @THE WELD IS CLOSED

The concept of Dialogue in the Dark is simple, visitors are lead  in groups by blind guides through specially constructed dark rooms where scent, sound, wind, temperature and texture convey the characteristics of daily environments—a park, a city, a boat cruise or a bar. Daily routines become a new experience.

A reversal of roles is created: people who can see are taken out of their familiar environments. Blind people provide them with security and a sense of orientation by transmitting to them a world without pictures. The tour itself lasts 45 minutes but the experience can last a lifetime.

 

The concept has proven effective. Over the last twenty years, Since its opening in 1988, Dialogue in the Dark has been presented throughout the world in over 30 countries and 130 cities. More than 10 million visitors worldwide have experienced Dialogue in the Dark and thousands of blind guides and trainers have found employment through it.

We are now REBRANDING, RELAUNCHING and REOPENING soon! So, watch out for our opening on 2022 or 2023.
