Dialogue in the Dark is a sensory journey through Melbourne.
An experience in total darkness, you will be led by blind guides, and learn to interact and communicate by relying on other senses.
After more than 25 years and 41 countries across the globe, Dialogue in the Dark is open in Melbourne, partnered with Guide Dogs Australia, Australia's most trusted charity brand.
A reversal of roles is created: people with sight are removed from their familiar ways, losing the sense they rely on the most - their sight; people who are blind or visually impaired are your guides, providing security and orientation while transmitting a world without pictures. Within this new paradigm, guides open the visitor's eyes to show them that the world of the blind is in no way poorer - only different.
Within a period of an hour, the experience allows the participant to discover:
How to find orientation and move in the dark
How to identify the world through the remaining senses
How to communicate and collaborate without sight
