Back from holidays beginning of 2021 I found this e-mail from a DSE colleague. She introduced The Blind, a French artist who performs braille graffiti to bring together blind and sighted people.
Dialogue Social Enterprise
Empathy is not a nice to have. It’s a must to have. When the frame changes, roles and routines become quickly obsolete. How to keep the overview without eyesight or to communicate without verbal expression? In an unknown environment we must move out of the comfort zone, have to develop new abilities and skills and must team up with people, we usually don’t talk to. Dialogue Social Enterprise creates immersive exhibitions and workshop to foster empathy and openness towards other ways of living, cultures, and values. In our famous Dialogue in the Dark, blind tour guides will invite you on an adventure in total darkness, helping you to unlock your non-visual perception and to overcome both your stereotypes and your own limitations in new surroundings. In Dialogue in Silence, deaf hosts will widen your capacity to communicate while you discover the power of nonverbal communication. The role swap works for the duration of the experiences. The impact lasts for ever, as your perspectives are changing towards disability and ability.
