In Dialogue in the Dark, visitors are guided by visually impaired guides in complete darkness. They get a chance to experience daily environments of life like crossing the street, walking through a market or visiting a café in specially designed darkened rooms. As they travel through the Dialogue in the Dark exhibition, a reversal of role is created where the sighted become blind and the blind become sighted.
The journey aims to raise awareness of diversity and equality, and create an inclusive environment for those we label as “disabled”. The experience allows you to overcome false sympathy, prejudices and stereotypes. In Darkness, interest replaces ignorance, and lack of understanding changes into empathy.

Al Nour Wal Amal is a non-profit organization established in 1954 by a group of volunteer women as the first center in Egypt and the Middle East for the care, education, vocational training, and social integration of blind girls and women into society. Al Nour Wal Amal Association aims to establish the rights of blind girls and women by providing them with education, boarding facilitates, literacy programs in Braille, and vocational trainings in order to develop their potentialities and special abilities, ensuring their physical and psychological health and allowing them to develop their own identities to become self-dependent integrated members of society.
