Dialogue Social Enterprise

We create award-winning immersive exhibitions and workshop experiences around the topics of social inclusion and human sciences where difficult questions are heard, appreciated and answered.

Our products are designed to build a positive framework to challenge stereotypes and prejudice through dialogue and encounter. The core of our immersive and surprising products are transformative experiences that enhance emotions and empathy through playful activities. All products can be adapted to any cultural background and to many sizes and business models.

DSE exhibitions are transformative experiences. Visitors & participants undergo a role reversal that forms the basis of experience-based learning opportunity. It transforms you by the promotion of empathy, solidarity, and openness towards other ways of living, cultures, and values. Visiting one of our exhibitions and workshops provides an opportunity for reflection at three levels: with the other, 'otherness' and thyself.

This social impact then becomes tangible, not only on personal but also community level. Numerous impact studies, our worldwide presence and 31 years of successful implementation have all shown one thing: our work matters.

Do you want to bring this unique experience to your city? We both offer custom made concepts or our standard bestsellers in a franchise model. Our most well-known products are:

Dialogue Exhibitions

Dialogue in the Dark

Since 1988

Dialogue in the Dark is one of the world’s most exciting life-changing experiences where visitors are guided by blind guides in absolute darkness. You get a chance to experience daily environments of life like enjoying a walk in the park, take a boat cruise or visiting a café in specially designed darkened rooms.



Dialogue in Silence

Since 2005

Dialogue in Silence is an interactive playful experience in total silence where participants discover a repertoire of non-verbal expression with the help of deaf and hearing-impaired guides & trainers. Participants enter an area of complete silence wearing noise-cancelling headsets, and experience an environment that helps them discover openness, empathy and an enhanced power of concentration.


Dialogue with Time

Since 2012

Dialogue with Time is an interactive exhibition, the first of its kind in the world that deals with aging from an original perspective. The groundbreaking exhibition allows visitors a glimpse into the world of the elderly. Through experiential play, using latest technology, a creative intergenerational dialogue is produced, dispelling stereotypes and clichés of old age.
