What if you could shop for your mental needs, as easily as your physical ones?

Intangible Goods is an Australian initiative with the goal to normalise our mental health needs. A play on the world of junk food and vending machines, it gives people tangible tools to feed their daily mental needs and explore tricky topics like depression, anxiety, stress and loneliness in a fun, snack-sized way.

Get on board – Invite your friends and family to come to Riverside in February and use this wonderful vending machine to feed their daily mental needs and help raise funds for Australian mental health charities and organisations.

The Products
From bags of ‘Bravery’ to bars of ‘Belonging’, ten snack-sized products that feed your psyche, not your sweet tooth – made with mental health professionals.

The Machine
A vending machine dispenses each Intangible Good for a few dollars each.

Dates & Times
Monday 4 – Friday 22 February 2019
Open Box Office hours and one hour prior to performances
