Producer FailSpace


Let’s Talk About…Failure!

Failspace is an AHRC-funded research project that explores how the cultural sector can better recognise, acknowledge and learn from failure. The project is led by Leila Jancovich (University of Leeds), with David Stevenson (Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh).

As a Failspace Champion, Bristol-based freelance Producer Tom Bevan is ready to share the evaluation methodology developed by the Failspace team in a practical way with fellow industry members. This workshop will offer time to explore the findings of the research, reflect on  failure as a concept in the cultural sector, and will finish with some hands-on time trying out the evaluation tools.

The aim of the workshop is to start thinking about how we can normalise conversations about failure as an important component of project planning, evaluation and ultimately…success!
