"Dialogue in the Dark" is a worldwide awareness-raising exhibition that offers life-changing experiences where visitors get an opportunity to experience what it is like to live in complete darkness for 100 minutes of their lives. Guided by blind guides, visitors are led through various settings and activities that are normally mundane to many in absolute darkness. Through the process, participants learn how to interact without sight by using their other senses and how to cooperate with other people around them.
During the journey, you form an intimate bond with your blind guides and get to hear their story. An important aspect of traveling in the dark is the experience of working with the people around you. Through the process of relying on each other and caring for each other, visitors realize the importance of being together rather than alone.
"Dialogue in the Dark" works towards raising awareness for diversity and inclusion of disabled people. The experience helps us to overcome false sympathy, prejudices, and stereotypes. In “Darkness”, interest replaces ignorance, and lack of understanding changes into empathy. The exhibition has inspired more than 950 million people around the world in 160 cities in Europe, Asia, and America for 28 years since its first opening in Germany in 1988. First introduced in 2010 in South Korea, Dialogue in the Dark Bukchon is the 10th permanent "Dialogue in the Dark" exhibition site in the world.
