    Help Us Write 'Intentions': A Book About Failure

    "If you're not prepared to be wrong, you'll never come up with anything original." - Sir Ken Robinson

    Welcome to Intentions, a collaborative project between Arne van Oosterom and Kate Andrews.

    Our aim is to create a book of compelling stories from around the world, capturing how young creative people struggle to make a difference, in an indifferent world.

    The book 'Intentions' will tell stories about the importance of making mistakes. Because from failure we learn and grow. This is what being creative is all about. It is about learning by trying, sketching and experimenting. It is failure which makes us grow the most, not 'success'.

    Intentions puts the importance of failure center stage for a change.

    And we need your help! So, do you have a story to tell us about? Post it here on Facebook. And maybe you can become a part of Intentions.

    sounds like a cool project.
    do you know about 'het instituut voor briljante mislukkingen'?
    they have also lots of failure stories.
