Founded in 2012 in West Michigan, U.S.A. Failure:Lab combines storytelling, audience reflection time and performance in a fast-paced program, with 7 storytellers and 8 performances, packed into a 99 minute show.
In an Australian first, this curated line up of creative professionals will each share personal failure stories including a bank-busting exhibition, broken collaborations, uninspired moments, poor business moves and other lows that you don’t hear about – but be honest, have experienced!
Storytellers share a story of failure, joining Failure:Lab’s global mission to eliminate the fear, stigma, and isolation around failure which, in turn, helps remove roadblocks to communication, innovation, and community.
