Dillo 50 Sensory Spaces

The goal of our project is to curate two large sensory spaces. Dillo Day remains one of the most coveted days on campus and we hope to bolster the experience of the festival's attendees including Northwesterners, their guests, Mayfest members, and the organization’s alumni by providing them with two carefully curated sensory spaces that serve as a means to promote wellness on Dillo Day. We want our attendees to have a space in which they can temporarily escape the high-energy environment of Dillo Day to decompress while still having the ability to opt into interactive experiences that are integrated into the space. Our sensory spaces would use lights, sound, colors, and other sensory cues to calm and engage our attendees. It would also have more interactive, calming elements like listening stations (in which attendees can use sound blocking headphones to listen to songs from previous and slotted artists), charging stations, hydration stations, fans, and calming projections. We also hope to advance the educational mission of the university by catering to the diversity we pride ourselves on and continuing wellness initiatives for the student body in what can often be a high-intensity and high-rigor academic environment. Ultimately, our hope is to better the overall festival experience of our attendees by creating distinct spaces that prioritize their wellness on Dillo Day.
