FAILURE FESTIVAL is an invitation. An invitation for you to help us engage failure in a public setting. We need you because we just don’t know how to do it on our own. We don’t know whether to barrel towards it, argue with it, or sit on its lap. We don’t know if we should give it keys to our apartment or ask it to apologize. Sometimes we cower in the corner. Sometimes we lie down and try to convince it that we are asleep…or dead.

We want to know what failure reveals about our world, our culture, and ourselves that success masks. We do not expect easy answers. We may find none at all. This is a celebration and acknowledgement of the fact that when things inevitably do not go exactly as we plan, somehow, we must adapt. We are hoping you might help us take the first step.
