Failure Lab


Wege Auditorium

Starts: 7:00PM
Doors: 6:00PM

Failure Lab showcases the untold struggles behind successful people. These unique events bring communities and organizations together through powerful stories, crowdsourced lessons, and music. There is much to be learned from sharing our struggles–everyone fails, the real question is how do we respond to failure?

The goal of Failure Lab is to eliminate the fear of failure and to encourage intelligent risk-taking. By sharing struggles, people can learn from the failures of others and dismantle the stigma around failure. In order to have honest conversations about success, we need to have honest conversations about failure.

This 2-hour event will consist of 5 storytellers and 6 entertainers. The special ingredient is the storytellers not resolving the story of what happened after the failure. The audience’s own lessons are crowdsourced and used to create a new dialogue that brings communities and teams together.
