Event description

Description

An ongoing experiment in the power of Inexpertise

The Lab is a not-for-profit place where people can experiment and be experimented on in service of enlivening human beings. Born in 2015, it has evolved through a number of forms and, a bit like the legend of the phoenix, each time a format begins to get stale and repetitive, it dies and is reborn.

The current format has a very minimal structure - a date, a venue and the Lab manifesto. Anybody can host a Lab. The content is discovered between those who attend. Whoever shows up is whoever was meant to show up. You can come along and bring an experiment or you might discover an experiment 'live'.

The Lab conditions are as follows:

  • Leaping beats looking
  • Awareness beats application
  • Movement beats stuckness
  • Failing Happy beats looking good
  • Curiosity beats judgement
  • Play beats profit
  • Showing up beats showing off

The simple rules for Lab experiments are:

  • I have never tried this before
  • I have no idea if it will work or not
  • It is in service of enlivening human beings
