Faal Festival 2023
Are you already training your failure muscles to relax? Are your failures on your CV? Do you dare to share your failure story? Discover, listen, try, but above all, learn to fail at the Faal Festival at TivoliVredenburg on 2 June 2023.
Join Utrecht University, TivoliVredenburg and the Institute for Failure Studies in breaking the taboo on failure. Take on the experiment, laugh at your own mistakes and learn to use your imperfections and failures for a more beautiful world.
Take a closer look at the performance society with Thijs Launspach and listen to personal stories about performance pressure from Gregory Sedoc and Irene Schouten, among others. The spoken language at the festival will be Dutch.
With Faalfitness, Fuck-Up talks, the We-can-also-not-draw club and the Bumbling Speeddate café (and much more), we help you put the rat race into perspective, let go of performance pressure and celebrate fallible humanity!
We critically examine the performance society, put the rat race into perspective and celebrate fallible human beings. Because failure is not only inevitable and necessary, but also useful and fun!
Organised by Utrecht University, TivoliVredenburg and the Institute for Failure Studies
