"Inclusion begins when

Empathy replaces Sympathy"

What is Dialogue in the Dark (DID) ?

Dialogue in the Dark is India’s first darkness themed empathy experience that 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 brings about a radical change in the mindset of the visitors, thereby, leaving them with a view that People with Disabilities are actually not disabled but differently abled and what they need is INCLUSION leading to 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. Dialogue in the Dark has been presented in more than 60 cities in India in a permanent & travelling exhibit format.
