About Failure:Lab Pittsburgh
Failure:Lab is coming to Pittsburgh’s Kelly Strayhorn Theatre on Friday, June 26, from 7-9 p.m. thanks to ZeroSixEight.
Failure:Lab works to change the mentality about failure and encourage intelligent risk taking. Tickets can be purchased online for $20–student tickets are only $15!
Six storytellers will share their personal experiences of failure throughout the evening. Only the story of failure is shared–there is no casting blame or discussion of a later success. This gives audience members the opportunity to realize the difference between those who fail and give up and those who persevere.
Silence follows each storyteller to allow time to reflect on how the story they heard relates to their own experiences. All in attendance are encouraged to share their thoughts on Twitter using #failurelab.
Failure:Lab hopes the audience will be able to see failure as the first step toward being successful.
Live entertainment will take place between stories help clear the air and recharge the room. Singers, aerial silks artists, a professional dancer, and a poet are the performers for the Pittsburgh event.
Check out the list of storytellers and entertainers for more details!
In addition to the events taking place in different cities, Failure:Lab offers businesses the opportunity to host private events to give team members a boost of confidence and positively impact workplace morale. Contact Failure:Lab for more information!
