Failure:Lab | Detroit says
Failure:Lab | Detroit is a raw and intimate evening showcasing personal stories of failure.

Hosted by: Jacquise Purifoy and Nina Payne

Brought to you by: New Holland Brewing Company and Open Systems Technologies, Inc.

With a refreshing vibe of openness, Failure:Lab helps pave the way for change by crushing the isolation and stigma around failure. Failure:Lab empowers audience members to persevere by exploring the space between people who fail and quit, and those who get back up again.

How does it work?

Failure:Lab mixes powerful stories, music, and audience interaction to create an intimate evening of discussion and learning.


Each storyteller shares a personal failure. There’s no talk of lessons learned or who’s to blame – just the story of what went wrong.

Audience Members:

After each narrative there is time for the audience to reflect on and tweet what the story means to them.


A performance follows to clear the air and recharge the room.

Embrace it, learn from it, build on it.
