“Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.” – Henry Ford

The Festival of Failure is a highlight event of the Bendigo Inventor Awards Program.

The Festival of Failure uses humour, entertainment and the media to share a powerful message- that we need not be afraid of failing! Indeed, if we are to be bold and brave inventors, innovators , entrepreneurs and, indeed, humans, we must embrace our failure alongside our success. It is in failing that we grow and learn how to improve.

Through an inspiring panel of speakers from a mix of the Arts, Sport, Corporate, Industry, Education, Emergency Services and Science, you will learn to appreciate that failure is part of the journey of whatever you dare to attempt and not let it stop you from chasing your dream.
