5 staff and their family members joined the Race in the Dark 2014 which was organised by Dialogue in the Dark at Petrosains, Suria KLCC on 8 March 2014. The concept of Race in the Dark 2014 consists of a series of rooms in complete darkness. Participants in groups of up to 8 people, get a short briefing and are introduced to the use of a long cane before embarking on the journey through darkness. Escorted by a guide, they spend about 45 minutes exploring darkened galleries: a public park, a bustling city street, a cafe, to name a few. Within this new paradigm, it guides to open visitors' eyes to show them that the world of the blind is in no way poorer just different.
