Tours | Dialogue in the Dark

Tours | Dialogue in the Dark

A completely immersive experience in the absence of visual information.

As a visitor to the Dialogue in the Dark™ experience, you’ll receive a better understanding about the real life situation of blind people, and the overcoming of false sympathy, prejudices and stereotypes. Interest replaces ignorance, and lack of understanding can be changed into empathy.

A tour in the Dialogue in the Dark™ experience lasts for around an hour, and happens in complete darkness. In the beginning it’s a shock to accept the total absence of any visual information, but bit by bit human nature is able to adapt and cope with the unusual surroundings.

Most importantly are two helpers:

Melbourne Firstly, a white cane is delivered before the journey starts. This every day aid used by people who are blind helps find orientation in the dark, and protects everyone while moving around by identifying obstacles of all kinds.

Melbourne Secondly, no one is left alone in the dark. All tours are organised in groups of up to eight people, and lead by an experienced and specially trained guides who are blind or partially sighted. S/he knows exactly how to supervise the group. Comfort and safety are guaranteed and, as the most competent ambassador, blind individuals convey a culture without images.

Visitors explore the unseen, and learn to see in darkness

Communication bridges the gaps, and with physical support such as holding hands and most importantly, trust: all people can appreciate the tour in the dark.

The tour guide takes the group through faithfully recreated environments, which are both everyday and iconically Melbourne, allowing the user to experience our city in the unfamiliarity of complete darkness. An invisible landscape emerges, composed out of sounds, scents, wind, textures and temperatures and arises inner pictures in the visitors mind.
