      Owens, Allan; Korhonen, P.; Passila, A.; Theatre Academy of Finland-University of Arts Helsinki, Lapeenranta University (Draamatayo, 2017-02-14)
      The Art of making Mistakes asks if mistakes exist in the first place. All the 17 international writers are professionals in the fields of drama and improvisation : teachers, researchers and artists, who have solid experience in the arts and who all have something to say about mistakes and how they view mistakes and the beauty that lies within them. This book is divided into two parts . In the first part, the writers reflect upon the philosophy of failure. In the second part, the writers offer workshops in which it is possible to consider one’s own relationship with mistakes, for instance through improv and drama exercises.
