Description of the event: 
The event consisted in a social event, a dinner, in a local restaurant. This dinner was specially since the participants got an eye mask the moment they got into the restaurant.
Through the evening, they had a social moment together without being able to see each other.
Three volunteers guided them, asked questions and opened discussions about visual impairment and how to raise awareness about disabilities, specially going abroad and having a mobility experience.
After a three course dinner and a dessert, they finally could see who was the person in front of them the whole time.
