WRDTP are collaborating with The Failure Institute to put on what is hopefully the first of more F-Up events. F-Up events incorporate a series of testimonials from fellow researchers, academics and people from other diverse backgrounds to share their experiences with failure leading to the discovery of their own keys to success and to de-dramatize the fact of making mistakes.
F-Up Nights are a global movement and event series which shares stories of professional failure. Starting as a small event in Mexico City in 2012, they are now in more than 300 cities across the globe. F-Up puts on events around the world where speakers share the stories behind their professional fuckups, using failure to encourage difficult, vulnerable, and meaningful conversations.
For this inaugural WRDTP F-Up night we invite PhD and MA students from across the WRDTP partner institutions to come and listen to 3 academic researchers affiliated with the DTP speak about their experiences with failure.
