Join us on Wednesday, June 26, from 11:45 am – 1:00 pm ET at the MFA Boston Remis Auditorium.

Panelists will share their perspectives on failure as a catalyst for innovation and the importance of fostering a culture that encourages risk-taking as a valuable learning experience. Attendees will gain practical insights into building working cultures that thrive on the lessons learned from setbacks. Don’t miss this opportunity to explore a reframing of failure as an essential part of the design process.
