프로그램

Welcome to The Austin Blind Cafe Experience, an award winning positive social impact evening!

Please sign your liability waiver in order to participate in this experience at theblindcafe.com/liabilitywaver

In this experience, you will be challenged to socially engage as you break bread with strangers, participate in a discussion with our legally Blind Ambassadors, and experience an intimate music in the dark showcase. There will be no distraction of your visual conditioning, social etiquette, or cell phones. The Blind Café does not try to perfectly recreate blindness. Instead, it allows people to interact, trust each other, and experience music and community in an entirely new way. In the dark, there are no uncomfortable glances, no self-consciousness about what you’re wearing or what you weigh, and no distinction between the sighted and the blind.

Please be advised that you will be in 100% darkness for about 1.5 - 2 hours. 100% darkness means you won't be able to see your hand in front of your face and it can be very easy to become disorientated. But don't be discouraged! We’re excited to share this most moving and powerful experience in the dark with you.
Other things to note
Please be advised we will be in 100% darkness. It is very easy to become disoriented. You will be in close proximity to other people’s space. Please be respectful and use your voice when needed.

Rosh, an American singer-songwriter, attended a dark cafe in Reykjavik, Iceland while on tour in 2007. After engaging socially in the dark, he designed an intimate music listening and dinner experience in 100% darkness, music performed by his band Rosh & the Blind Cafe Orchestra. In 2010, Rosh met Rick Hammond, a blind poet and Richie Flores, a blind singer-songwriter and invited them to contribute a blind awareness Q&A to the program. And so the social impact Q&A with legally blind staff completed The Blind Cafe Experience.

What an interesting experience! Being in the total darkness was actually calming and peaceful. I thought I would have anxiety. It was great to hear from people for whom blindness is reality. The only downside was the food. I'm just not a fan of cold dishes. I think the experience could be heightened if you were served during the meal as well instead of the food just sitting out at your table for who knows how long before you get to sit down and eat. The concert in the dark was amazing!

Rosh clearly has deep passion for bringing people together and is a very gracious host. The food was very well prepared! Our blind ambassadors were welcoming, fun, engaging, and gracious as well. A very memorable experience.

Overall we did not enjoy the experience. The menu and food we ate were not clearly explained - we still don't know what we ate. There were way too many people in the room also. I believe it was around 100. It would be have been much better had it been an intimate experience with 10-15 people and not all of us crammed into a room. We each had one plastic disposable spoon - no knife or fork and the tables were the plastic foldable kind without any table cloths. The idea is excellent, but the execution just felt a little bit low budget. For $95/person the value is not there.

A unique invitation to step into the way someone else experiences the world, and to do so together with friends or strangers or both. I went alone, which I wouldn't recommend unless you're lucky enough to get seated in the middle of a table. I was on the end, and didn't have anyone to talk to for much of the event. That being said, there was plenty to engage with in the delicious food, painstakingly finding it and eating it, the music, and other structured parts of the evening. Definitely recommend checking it out!

OH, man. What can I say, but that you have to have to have to HAVE TO go and experience the blind cafe yourself. This is an experience I've been wanting to do for the past several years and finally got to do last night with a friend. I would highly encourage going with a friend or a loved one as it is such a sensual (not even in a sexual manner) experience.

What a delightful evening! We got introduced to some adorable guide dog puppies in training, heard many hilarious and poignant stories by our awesome host Garrick, and found out that they were totally prepared for glowing nail polish on one guest who was given gloves to complete the “total darkness” experience. The food was good, the dessert was delicious, and the music sublime. If you ever were curious about what the non-sighted world is like, I highly recommend this. Plus, it’s amazing how bright one small tea light really is.
