Dialogue in the Dark
Date: 2nd May, 2017
Whilst on the way to attend the Dialogue in the Dark exhibition, I didn’t know what to expect. However, as soon as we arrived at the exhibition, we were told that we were going to walk in complete darkness with a walking stick. We were also told that we would be accompanied by a tour guide that is visually impaired. The whole experience was intriguing, as I had no idea that my senses could go over the roof in complete darkness. More importantly, I was overwhelmed when understanding how possibly dangerous and vulnerable for the visually impaired to go about in their daily life. I, too, had an epiphany on how much we take our vision for granted, and that we should appreciate what we have while it’s still here.
