Shadows of the Soul: A Profound Emotional Journey with Dialogue in the Dark

A profound, tearful journey that unveils the human spirit’s resilience, fostering empathy and understanding in the heart of darkness.

What is Dialogue in the Dark(DID)

  • Dialogue in the Dark lets you step into the shoes of a visually impaired person to experience their way of living, their challenges and most importantly, their abilities in an immersive dark exhibition format which is facilitated by the visually impaired themselves.
  • This role reversal has brought about a radical change in the mindset of the visitors, thereby, leaving them with a view that the disabled need economically empowering opportunities and not sympathy.
  • Dialogue in the Dark’s mission & objective is to break the stigma, prejudices, myths, misconceptions associated with disability and promote social inclusion of PwDs in an entertaining manner.

How DID it all start in India?

In 2010, while waiting for his delayed flight at Atlanta City – USA, our Founder Mr. S V Krishnan came across an intriguing exhibition of Dialogue in the Dark and decided to go through the 45 minute immersive dark experience in order to kill time. Little did he know that the experience was going to set him on a decade long journey of powerful social impact.

Mr. Krishnan was humbled and amazed by how being able to connect with a visually impaired person at a basic human level was so simple & empowering. He felt this would make a significant impact in creating awareness of social inclusion in Indian society given our diverse demographics with respect to Disability.

As a culmination of this idea, Mr. Krishnan & his wife Mrs. Sudha Krishnan founded Dialogue in the Dark in India in 2010 by setting up the first dark exhibition center in Hyderabad.
