Dialogue in the Dark (DiD) Singapore puts visitors in everyday situations – except in complete darkness. Simple things like crossing the street or visiting a hawker centre suddenly become extraordinary challenges. Blind guides lead visitors through simulated environments. In the darkness, visitors are forced to rely on their other senses. Role reversal takes place. The blind become the ones with mobility and confidence.
Dialogue in the Dark Singapore is an exclusive collaboration between Ngee Ann Polytechnic (through Social Lab Ltd) and Dialogue Social Enterprise. Originally founded in Germany, Dialogue in the Dark has reached 30 countries since 1988, impacting over six million visitors and creating thousands of jobs for the visually impaired.
Dialogue in the Dark Singapore aims to raise awareness and facilitate inclusion of marginalized people in our community. Our vision of social integration goes beyond just helping the blind. In the darkness, we can no longer see differences of race, class, and religion.URL: http://www.dialogueinthedark.com.sg
