Job: “Dialogue Experience”
Muse Projects Community Interest Company invite blind and visually impaired persons who want to join their team in the international social and cultural exhibition “Dialogue Experience” to open in Waterloo, London in June.
Dialogue Experience is an exhibition in a pitch darkened space which proposes a platform for experiential encounter to the benefit of human diversity, respect for social minorities and their inclusion. The exhibition seeks to create tolerance and awareness about disability and difference. By role reversal, this exhibition enables a blind person to be a guide for sighted visitors in an experiential space. This allows for a free dialogue.
This exhibition was inspired by Martín Buber’s philosophy and his quote: “…the only way to learn is through encounter”.
If you are interested in becoming a guide in this exciting exhibition, please email a cover letter and a CV to: firstname.lastname@example.org. After selection interviews, candidates will participate in a training programme before the opening of the exhibition.
