“Dinner in the Dark” is an interactive, beautiful journey into the world of the senses… A unique experience that will be imprinted in your memory. It awakens and sharpens the senses, all apart from vision, while at the same time enhancing the understanding of the daily life of people with visual impairments.
You are invited to dine in complete darkness, leaving your sight aside for a while! Trust the waiters to guide you, serve you, and introduce you to a one-of-a-kind dinner, away from any light source.
After dinner, the lights come on; a musical show follows and, in a warm surrounding atmosphere, we exchange impressions from this unmatchable experience.
To date, the event has been enjoyed by over 3.200 people in 19 Dinners throughout Greece!
During the “Dinner in the Dark”:
- European “Dinner in The Dark” standards are followed.
- All necessary safety measures are taken in advance.
- The customer service is performed by specially trained blind and sighted volunteers.
- Admission is for holders of pre-sold, individual invitations and includes a full menu.
“Dinner in the Dark” is an ideal opportunity for a company and its employees to cultivate a socially responsible profile.
- Team Building: This interactive experience deepens the interpersonal relationships of the people involved. At each table, a group of colleagues is invited to meet again under special circumstances, adopting a fresh perspective. Performing simple daily habits in a completely different way activates teamwork, problem-solving, and creative thinking.
- CSR: The event can take place in the context of the Corporate Social Responsibility of your company, strengthening the NPO “Me Alla Matia” and its activities to support socially vulnerable groups.
- It combines two corporate activities in one event.
