Dialogue in the Dark // Dialogue in Silence

Dialogue in the Dark and Dialogue in Silence Shanghai, China

Dialogue in the Dark has been introduced to Mainland China by Shiyin Cai, who opened her first workshop venue in Shanghai in 2011 after working for Dialogue Social Enterprise in Hamburg. In the last few years, Dialogue in the Dark China has successfully spread to Chengdu, Beijing, Shenzhen and Nanjing and has become one of the first seven accredited social enterprises in China, working towards changing prejudices & discrimination against vulnerable groups in mainland China. Chengdu and Shenzhen offer a very rich and unique exhibition setting, which was complemented by a new exhibition site in Shanghai in June 2017.

“When it is dark enough, you can see the stars” - Persian Proverb.

"In the past 6 years, we have been striving to be that little dim light in the dark in mainland China to push the progress for equality and justice. The path is long and full of obstacles, but we have the faith that we will be the light of the world" Shiyin Cai
