FailFest 2019: When Doing Good Goes Bad

Ever had a moment where you had a phenomenal idea turn out to be a complete FAIL?

This March 14, come and enjoy a beer while we celebrate some of our biggest flops.

We're excited to join the Triangle Community Foundation, BC/DC Ideas, Third Space Studio, and Landmatters 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, NC 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
