Ashoka Fellow Andreas Heinecke: Empathy and Dialogue in the Dark

July 19, 2016

Hosted by David Castro

A dialogue with Ashoka Fellow Andreas Heinecke, founder and CEO of Dialogue Social Enterprise and Dialogue in the Dark. Dialogue is an exhibition and workshop to explore the unseen. The concept of Dialogue in the Dark is simple: blind guides lead visitors through specially constructed dark rooms in which scent, sound, wind, temperature and texture convey the characteristics of daily environments. Dialogue in the Dark has been presented in more than 30 countries and 130 cities throughout the world since its opening in 1988. More than seven million visitors worldwide have experienced Dialogue in the Dark and thousands of blind guides and trainers have found employment through the program.
