Art in the Dark: Not Just A Sculpture!

‘Art in the Dark’ is an adventure for your sense of touch. When you arrive, you will be given a blindfold to wear while you touch, feel, and explore sculptures created by blind artists. Put yourself in the shoes of these very special creators and see just how sensitive your sense of touch can become!

All sculptures at “Art in the Dark” are made by blind and partially sighted members of the “Hands of Fire Sculpture Group”, who train people with vision loss to create their own art.


‘See Inside Me’ Production: A Journey Chronicling the Power of Dance

After you test your sense of touch, you will be treated to an hour-long emotionally-charged dance production featuring our international stars and local talent. The shows will take you on an inspirational journey telling the story of Nikki,  a young woman living with vision loss. Experience her joys, triumphs, heartaches, and struggles as she grows beyond the challenges of living as a blind woman.

The production will showcase Kadu & Larissa, Jordan & Tatiana, new additions Renata & Jorge, Maxence & Virginie, and the Vision Dancers: the world’s first blind and partially sighted Brazilian Zouk dancers. Witness the show hailed as the “Crown Jewel” of Vision Dance Encounter 2014! This is a rare opportunity for an unforgettable evening.

See Inside Me” is selected as a “Best of Ontario” Showcase at the Ontario’s Celebration Zone during the Toronto 2015 PanAm and ParaPanAm games.
