Who We Are

Fail Better NYC is a developmental BIPOC and CUNY centric community of multi-disciplinary artists who safely experiment together with their unfinished, messes-in-progress. We welcome you to share your new or revisited work with us in our free workshops where failure is destigmatized and productive mistakes are embraced: Fail Better Show & TellStory Time, Quiet Time, and 1st Draft SeriesEach program encourages artists to fail and grow through cold readings, unpolished performances, and constructive feedback tailored to their respective needs.

"Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better."
-Samuel Beckett, Worstward Ho
