WTF IS WHAT DOES NOT?
What do you get when you bring together creative industry veterans, creators, side-hustlers, and change-makers? What Does Not.
As a brand it may be the new kid on the block, but the team behind it, are no strangers to the events scene.
What Does Not is the UK’s first multipotential events and creative entity with a community at its core. At its heart, WDN is on a mission to preserve and evolve humans and culture. How? By putting human connection front and center, by allowing people from all walks to be their true and fullest selves, by creating a window into a world without preconceived ideas.
Named after the famous aphorism by Nietzsche, ‘What does not kill us, makes us stronger’, (a mindset proven by science to be essential for success in life and business), WDN is kneading together the most brilliant and marginalised minds to create a starter culture of badasses and hustlers who can kickstart the social fermentation process needed for real change.
