Must “See” Dialog In the Dark

In Around Atlanta on 04/04/2011 at 5:38 am

Can you imagine being blind and living in a world of darkness? Could I navigate my way around and use my other senses to compensate? Could I figure out how to navigate and survive? These are questions sighted people, like myself, ponder from time to time. Frankly, it’s really scary to consider.

“Visitors are led through a pathway by blind or visually impaired guides. Within the pathway it is totally dark and the only way to experience the everyday environments simulated within the pathway is through senses other than sight. Totally dependent on their guides, the exhibit encourages visitors to reflect on the lack of sight and the social barriers it can create.” (from goldstar.com website)

Goldstar offers discounted tickets to the event. Simply sign up at Goldstar.com and purchase tickets for $12.96 instead of the full price of $25.92.
