The concept of Dialogue in the Dark is simple, visitors are lead by blind guides in groups through specially constructed dark rooms in which scent, sound, wind, temperature and texture convey the characteristics of daily environments – for example a park, a city, a boat cruise or a bar. The daily routines become a new experience.
A reversal of roles is created: people who can see are taken out of their familiar environment. Blind people provide them with security and a sense of orientation by transmitting to them a world without pictures. The tour itself lasts 45 minutes but the effects can last a lifetime.
The concept has been proved quite effective. Over the last twenty years 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 10 million visitors worldwide have experienced Dialogue in the Dark and thousands of blind guides and trainers have found employment through Dialogue in the Dark.
Dialogue Games is a playful space to practice our communication skills and abilities.
The room is turned into one large play area and the participants are turned into active players.
At each of the play stations, the players find a game, chosen for the communication skills and abilities needed to play it. In an entertaining way, they quickly learn to what extent communication and cooperation contribute to success.
The objective is to earn as many points as possible. But in order to win, players need to cooperate and not compete. They are faced with the challenge of developing common strategies and putting themselves in their co-players’ position.

HOL is committed to assist and help disabled or underprivileged children and youths to be contributors to the society and their families.
