FESTIVAL OF FAILURE AND F*CK UPS
2018 YEAR TWO: SECOND ATTEMPT AT FAILURE
In a time and society the idealises the perfect and successful we often forget that behind every winner are all of those who lost and behind every success is a long procession of failures, fiascoes and things that have gone (horribly) wrong.
That the failure is a necessary condition for success is undeniable, as it is through mistakes the we can correct the process and become cleverer, smarter and learn to do things in the desired fashion. The goal photo of success and the perfect moment then leaves out these errors and failures, erasing them from out consciousness.
Oops festival celebrates the courage to try and to fail – we explore failures and f*ck-ups in all fields of study.
During the year we recount stories of epic, entertaining and wondrous failures that would otherwise rarely be paid any attention to and November 16-18th we will meet for a day of experiments, talks, inventors and other weird and wonderful people to explore the value of failures.
Follow us for stories about weird and forgotten failures and f*ck-ups
