Goal of the event:
This event gave both the Erasmus students and the ESNers the oppurtunity to understand how blind people socialise.Everyone shared their cooking skills ,used their senses to guess the ingredients of each food, had a great time and raised awareness.
Short description of the event:
We blindfolded the participants when they entered the bar and we placed them at their seats.When they all gathered,we all introduced ourselves and then left them taliking with each other as we served the foods they had brought.The foods were served in three rounds so it will be easier fot the participants to make a mental note of the ingredients.We told them about the goals of the ExchangeAbility Project and of the Dinner in the Dark.When the tasting was over,everyone took of the blindfolds and we asked them about each food and its ingredients (most of them guessed the ingredients correctly) and then we told them to vote for the best recipe.Laslty,we asked them if they liked the event and announced the winner.
