About Dialogue in the Dark Singapore
What if you had to go through your daily routine without seeing anything? Enter Dialogue in the Dark Singapore (DID) with colleagues, schoolmates, or family members and experience everyday situations – in complete darkness. It offers a unique and effective platform to raise awareness and facilitate inclusion of all segments in the community, regardless of race, religion and disabilities, as they are no longer visible in the dark. The concept is simple yet powerful, the experience profound. The result? A mind-shift, deeper insights, and strengthened bonds.
