WHAT IS FAILURE:LAB?

FAILURE:LAB is filled with storytellers and entertainers recounting their most memorable brush with failure. The audience is encouraged to share their thoughts on Twitter using the hashtag #failurelab during the performances between stories.

STORYTELLERS

Share a personal failure. It’s simply an intimate story of what went wrong–no lessons learned or talk of who’s to blame.

ENTERTAINERS

A performance follows the Storyteller to clear the air and allow the audience to recharge.

AUDIENCES

Silence, to reflect on what the story means. The audience is encouraged to share their thoughts on Twitter using #failurelab during the performances between stories.

THE INCEPTION

FAILURE:LAB was founded in 2012 by a group of professionals in West Michigan to eliminate the fear of failure and encourage intelligent risk taking. We showcase storytellers and entertainers who share personal stories of failure, publish crowdsourced lessons, and instigate discussion.
