> ACE, an acronym for Art, Culture, and Education is a new & most
> contemporary social idea of creating Unique & First time experiences
> for its audience. ACE is creating a niche space for itself in the
> Knowledge entertainment segment riding on the need for Experiential
> Education that uses entertainment as a front ended tool to convey
> relevant themes of the current times thus ensuring an impactful & long
> lasting experience value to the visitors & guests.
>
> ACE, as a part of its endeavor to bring Unique and first of its kind
> experiences to India, has partnered with Dialogue Social Enterprise
> (DSE) to bring the Dialogue In the Dark ( DiD) to India starting at
> Hyderabad. Dialogue in the Dark is proposed for opening in Hyderabad
> in September 2010.
>
> Dialogue in the Dark is an exhibition which provides remarkable
> insights and extraordinary experiences. Escorted by visually impaired
> guides through galleries that are in total darkness, visitors learn
> how a daily routine can soon become an unforgettable experience. A
> reversal of roles is created in which sighted visitors lose the sense
> they rely on most—their sight—and depend upon guides who are visually
> impaired to provide security and a sense of orientation. Perceptions
> are enhanced and visitors experience the paradox of learning to see by
> not seeing, leaving them with a unique appreciation of a world without
> pictures. Through the use of smells, air currents, temperature
> changes, sounds and textures, different scenarios are presented to
> challenge the visitors as they progress through the Exhibition.
> Typical galleries feature: a walk through a public park and along a
> bustling city street, a visit to a food market, travel using public
> transport, and a stop at a café for refreshments. Throughout the whole
> experience a non-visual map is created in the visitor’s mind, along
> with a sense of fantasy and accomplishment.
>
> Dialogue in the Dark is not an ordinary exhibition; it is a platform
> for understanding between people with different abilities. It has been
> presented in 25 countries and in over 150 cities throughout Europe,
> Asia, and the Americas, promoting respect and tolerance in an
> engaging, light-hearted way. www.dialogue-in-the-dark.com
>
> We are interested in hiring guides who are blind or visually impaired
> to work in the Dialgoue in the Dark project based at Hyderabad.
>
> A highly diverse team, in terms of age, background, degree of
> impairment, gender, education and religion, is at the core of Dialogue
> in the Dark. The prime screening points for those keen to join are a
> high level of motivation and commitment to the project’s goals and the
> willingness to provide above average performance as a participating
> member of an ambitious project.
>
> Some positions can only be offered to visually impaired people, while
> there are others, where anyone meeting the requirements can apply.
> Each position requires specific qualifications. Some also require a
