Dining in The Dark Learning Journey at SAVH

Description

Brought to you by YCS Special Needs Cluster

NO MORE SLOTS. For those who have applied, the Special Needs Cluster will be emailing you seperately with regards to your registration status.

 

What are the limitations that the visually impaired face? Are there any restrictions to what the non-sighted can pursue as a career or hobby? How do I know whether to approach them to offer help?

If you ever had such questions running through your mind, come join us in this first-hand opportunity to experience what it is like to be without sight.

The ‘Dining In The Dark’ (DITD) experience is organized by the Singapore Association of the Visually Handicapped (SAVH), to raise public awareness of the challenges that persons with vision impairment face in their activities. As a participant, you will be consuming your meal in pitch darkness. To the blind, it is a lifetime of darkness or severely impaired vision. Through DITD, we hope that the visually sighted will be able to experience what it is like to be without sight, and realize that being visually impaired does not limit their capacity to pursue their dreams.

Note that the dining experience will be in an entirely PITCH BLACK setting. Should you have any medical conditions or are likely to feel claustrophobic, please think through it carefully before you sign up. 

 

Should you withdraw after confirmation of your registration, you are to: 

- Find a one-to-one replacement for withdrawal, before 20th January 2019.

- Pay the full amount dining fee of SGD$32 for withdrawal after 20th January 2019.
