Fuckup Nights is a global speaker series where people gather every three months to talk about fucking up. It’s a simple concept but it packs a punch.

 

F.U.N has had multiple iteration and fails in Tāmaki Makaurau

Yes people, we’re not the first Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland iteration of Fuckup Nights. We launched in 2018 but Auckland actually had its F.U.N. cherry popped back three years earlier, in 2015. We’re not really sure why the O.G. discontinued but imagine something fucked up, which is very on theme and we salute that.

We want to create a community united by a mutual curiosity around failure. Fuck personas and fuck appearances. We’re all about reality and real people. 

 

Why the obsession with failure? 

It’s easy to say we have this ambitious goal to change society’s approach to failure, to claim that we’re going to play a pivotal role in turning failure from something to be ashamed of, into something that’s a normal, natural part of life and a source of growth.

Don’t get us wrong, we’d be fucking stoked if we achieved that, but we don’t pretend to be world-changers.

All we’re trying to do is create a safe space where people can feel empowered to be their raw and unfiltered selves because a space like that is pretty rare but get it right and magical moments can happen.

And if we can even create just one magical moment for just one person, where they feel supported by a room full of strangers, we reckon that’s something to be proud of.

 

Failure touches everybody speakers, attendees and us!

Fuckup Nights is about celebrating failure so, as a team, we give ourselves the freedom to be our imperfect selves, at least most of the time (we’re the first to admit this can be fucking hard to nail). 

The more events we deliver…the more fuckups we do and learn from! One of our most spectacular failures was when we had an event in a really cool location with a glass roof but it started raining partway through the night and completely drowned out our speakers. Then there was that time our pizza arrived half way through the presentations and that other time when we forgot to check our camera settings and our event photos were all blurry… #sorrysponsors.
