The aim of the dream vending project was to promote the benefits of dreams and encourage good sleeping habits.
Funded by a Healthy Communities Project Grant.
This creative project was developed by a group of Interdisciplinary Communications Project students that focused on the ‘joys of dreaming’ and sleep hygiene - an aspect of health and wellbeing that is rarely touched on.
The students created a social media campaign and built curiosity and interest by encouraging dream submissions from Twitter followers. They sourced a ‘dream vending machine’ that distributed the collected dreams to inspire and share sleep tips to RMIT City campus staff and students.
A Healthy Communities Project Grant funded their materials to produce posters, plush toys and a vending machine.
We are currently working with the students to create more engaging videos focusing on other areas of mental health and wellbeing to achieve academic and personal success.
