Dinners in the Dark is an immersive experience that will guide you through a three-course meal in complete darkness.

In this discovery journey, guided by blind and partially sighted service people, you will be able to explore the full potential of your senses, and focus on smell, taste and touch to unlock a new and unexpected way to experience food and its flavours.

But this is also a sharing and awareness experience: you will be able to get an insight of the daily experience of a person with visual impairments, and share your impressions with the other participants and with the guides, who are available to answer your questions.

What former participants and volunteers had to say about the previous editions

“The dinner was delicious. It was really amazing to taste different dishes in the dark and to try to guess what they were. […] It was a really wonderful evening and I thank the team for their good work, which enabled us to share this wonderful time together.”

– Clementin, a sighted guest

“We stayed at the restaurant until late, chatting about disability and what should be done to foster integration. […] I would like to thank the organizers for giving me the opportunity to meet wonderful people, to get new perspectives and to get involved in such a fruitful evening.”

– Larisa, a Romanian Erasmus student in Brussels

“This experience helped me to really understand visually impaired people’s way of life. […] The atmosphere during the dinner was a surprise for me. People were not at all shy and talked a lot to each other. At a certain point, they even refused to have the light back on!”

– William, a sighted helper from Belgium
