This summer, during two major music festivals, the Willingness team set up a tent which was called “Chat Bar“ the idea being to create a safe space for anyone to feel free to talk and lay back from all that is going on during such festivals. Strings were hung up where people could write down and share their dream. After reading through all of these dreams an interesting research was conducted by which results will be discussed thoroughly.
The majority of the dreams written with a 20% each were related to the themes of travelling and way of life.
It is interesting to note that when mentioning travelling most of the dreamers wrote that they want ‘to travel around the world’ whilst others specified in which country they want to visit or live in like ‘move to Australia’. One interesting dreamer stated that not only does s/he want to travel the world but to ‘live a creative life’ which lets the writer interpret it in his/her own way. When talking about travelling each individual would like to travel or move for different reasons maybe some to escape, others to explore and live new experiences and build memories whilst others want to start a new life.
We will explore the other themes in the next series of blogs so please stay tuned!
