Dialogue in the Dark Istanbul is promoted by Istanbul Social Enterprise (ISE).
ISE was founded by Hakan Elbir and Kerem Okumus to generate measurable social impact by doing business differently for a more inclusive society and opened the Turkcell Dialogue Museum in December 2013. The museum has three distinct parts:"Dialogue in the Dark", "Dialogue in Silence", which is an experience in total silence where participants discover a repertoire of nonverbal expression with the help of deaf and hearing-impaired guides and trainers, and the "Football in the Dark", where visitors can play football in total darkness.
On top, the Turkcell Dialogue Museum doubles up as an Incubator center, providing technological & innovative research for disabled people and research support.
"We feel so glad to open the DiD and DiS in Istanbul when we see the social impact that we create on both disabled and non-disabled people everyday.’’ Hakan Elbir
Open since December 2013
