Six creative professionals each shared their own 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. Watch the videos by clicking of the storyteller here.

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.

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.

Crush the stigma around failure. Embrace it, learn from it, build on it.
