"Failure" - Re-Storyation Quick Intro #3
The Free Quick-Intros / Sneak-Peaks into Re-Storyation (to help us get ready for the pilot course starting this month) are HERE!
Today I'm chatting about failure, and celebrating it as essential feedback in creative resilience and design processes! In that spirit, a couple of mis-takes in this video that I'd like to note (and am taking as feedback to change now that I've re-watched it):
1. Inequity is not an "innate story" as I said in the video - I misspoke (learning how to improvise on video - yay successful failure and learning!) Rather, I meant to say that inequity grows out of treating "things are scarce and we don't have enough" as an innate story.
2. I note this in the video too: something I've learned in chronic illness and disability justice spaces that I've been in more since I first created the "Have you failed yet today?" flowchart many years ago is that using "paralyzing" as a metaphor for my experience is inaccurate and can be ableist or harmful to people who actually experience various forms of physical paralysis. I showed the original flowchart and talked about why this word on it needs to change in the video because failure and accountability and change over time are exactly what I'm talking about, and I want to model that. However, if having it in the video in this way has in any way caused you harm, you are very welcome to let me know if you're willing, and I will take the video down if you want and be in touch about anything else that would support repair of that harm.

So glad to get to Re-Story with you!
