At a time when technology, global society and our lives are changing at unprecedented pace, Poet in the City's Fail Better 2020 season explored failure as a process, and change as a necessary, ever-present facet of our lives.

Through Poet in the City's Poetry Broadcast Series on YouTube, we explored new ways to connect poetry, ideas and audiences on a global scale in the digital world as a means to combat the loneliness and isolation of COVID-19, and enable us to continue supporting artists and producing art at this time.
