Failure Lab is a museum-led leadership program for Denver-area high school students. Students work with artists, museum staff, and their peers to organize exhibitions, plan events, and develop programming. Rather than focusing on achievement, Failure Lab is dedicated to developing creativity and building community, becoming a place where the risk of failure is always a possibility.

The program runs concurrently with the school year. Meetings are held weekly at the museum on Wednesdays from 4–6PM. Students in Failure Lab earn up to $300/semester for their participation.
 
Please be aware that surveys cannot be saved and returned to; the survey will time out. We recommend writing your answers in a word processing document, and copying and pasting them into this form when you are ready.
