Dialogue in the Dark™ is an opportunity for individuals who are blind or have low vision to gain valuable experience and workplace readiness.
All exhibition guides at Dialogue in the Dark™ are people who are blind or have low vision. They lead visitors through the exhibitions providing an imaginative, educational and entertaining experience. Progressing from initial disorientation to the joy of perceiving the world through the other senses, guides who are blind or have low vision enable visitors to feel comfortable and safe during their tour.
We believe that the opportunity to work in the exhibition empowers people who are blind as they become aware of their different abilities, their values, beauty, personality and energy. Guides working for an exhibition perceive this as a chance to move from unemployment and a sense of limitation, to a fulfilling work with a social context.
