Dialogue Social Enterprise GmbH

Dialogue Social Enterprise is a social enterprise operating worldwide. Our mission is to facilitate social inclusion of disabled, disadvantaged and elderly people on a global basis. Disability is a rising issue and demographic change is considered to be a megatrend. The number of people with disability is growing due to an aging population and an increase in chronic illnesses related to higher life cycle expectancies. Our goals are

- To raise awareness about the contribution to society by people with disability and elderly people, leading to an inclusive behaviour - To improve the social economic condition of handicapped people, especially blind, visually and hearing impaired people

To achieve these goals we operate exhibitions, workshops and events worldwide. We developed a social franchise system and work with local partners and organisations globally. Three programs catalyse our mission:

DIALOGUE IN THE DARK – Exhibitions and workshops in complete darkness to explore the unseen facilitated by visually impaired people

DIALOGUE IN SILENCE – Exhibitions and workshops in complete silence about nonverbal communication facilitated by hearing impaired people

DIALOGUE WITH TIME – Exhibitions and experimental play about the art of aging facilitated by senior citizens
