Ever had a moment where you had a phenomenal idea turn out to be a complete FAIL? Come and enjoy a beverage while we celebrate some of our biggest flops.
Triangle Community Foundation, BC/DC Ideas, Third Space Studio, and Landmatters are delighted to host FailFest: When Doing Good Goes Bad, an open-mic style event for Triangle nonprofit leaders to share their stories of failure. FailFest will be held at The Maywood - 658 Maywood Avenue in Raleigh on Thursday, March 14 – show starts at 5:00 PM. The first 50 people through the door will receive a free beer.
Why? Well, we thought it was the perfect time to celebrate failure. We all fail, and society tells us it’s a bad thing, but we disagree! FailFest is designed to help nonprofit leaders rethink failure and find ways to turn it into a valuable learning experience for their organizations and the community.
The event will feature influential Triangle nonprofit leaders who have failed over the years and bounced back magnificently. Speakers include:
- Jeanne Tedrow, North Carolina Center for Nonprofits
- Bevelyn Afor Ukah, Center for Environmental Farming Systems
- Stan Holt, Partners for Impact
- Janeen Gingrich, Marquis-Duggan Non-Profit Solutions
- Luke Smith, El Futuro
- Jes Averhart, Leadership Triangle
