Fear of failure too often robs the world of incredible creativity. Design educator, Diana Varma, firmly believes that while failure may choose to walk alongside us during our creative lives, we are not failure. Once we’ve established a healthy boundary with failure, we can then welcome it with open arms, inviting it to play.
In this interactive talk, Diana will lead you through her two-step process for making friends with failure that may change your creative process (or at least tickle your funny bone).
