    Failure:Lab is a raw and intimate event showcasing personal stories of failure. With a refreshing environment of openness, it helps pave the way for change by crushing the isolation and stigma around failure. Failure then takes its rightful place as the crucial first step to the next big thing. Embrace it, learn from it, build on it.

    Failure:Lab is filled with storytellers and entertainers recounting their most memorable brush with failure. It’s an intimate story of what went wrong–no lessons learned or talk of who’s to blame. The audience is encouraged to share their thoughts on Twitter using the hashtag #failurelab during the moment of reflection between stories. A musical performance follows each story to clear the air and allow the audience to recharge.

    Don't let the name fool you - while the stories may be about failure, the event is really about courage, determination, and the strength to get back up.
