The word first usage was in the 13th century by the Latins.

Ever wondered how ideas evolved or generated or how an unexpected result turns out to be the ideal result?
Ever even thought about generating a solution instead of figuring out an impasse?

The variety of Errares are uncountable starting from personal up to random. Every category have its own points of advantages and disadvantages depending on the situation and the outcome. For instance, a decision or an action made unintentionally that led to a better ideas than the one that was thought of or intended. However, it does not usually count as that, sometimes effectuating a completely unordinary idea or solution is the hidden undetermined answer. However, we believe our lives revolve around all the different types of an ERRARE. We either look for a slip in our lives, solve it, or reach greatness or in some cases we spend too much effort and time looking for shortcomings in life so we can avoid them. In a way or another, our lives revolve around “ERRARE”, It's undeniable.

At our event, you will understand all the different types of an ERRARE. Maybe you’ll find the solution, maybe not, but for sure you will leave the event with a whole new perspective of why we act the way we do.

ERRAREموضوع هذا العام هو
و كان اول استخدام للكلمة في القرن الثالث عشر.

هل تساءلت يوما كيف تطورت الأفكار أو ولدت أو كيف نتيجة غير متوقعة تبين أن تكون النتيجة المثالية؟
هل فكرت حتى الآن في إيجاد حل بدلا من التوصل إلى مأزق؟

هنالك مجموعة متنوعة من الخلافات هي لا تحصى ابداً بدايةٍ من اخطاء شخصية إلى اخطاء عشوائيه. كل فئة لها نقاطها الخاصة من مزايا وعيوب اعتمادا على الوضع والنتيجة. على سبيل المثال، قرار أو إجراء غير مقصود أدى إلى أفكار أفضل من تلك التي كانت تعتقد أو المقصودة. ومع ذلك، فإنه لا عادة الاعتماد على ذلك، وأحيانا التأثير على فكرة غير عادية تماما أو الحل هو الجواب الذي نبحث عنه. نحن إما ننظر إلى فلتة في حياتنا، حلها، أو الوصول إلى العظمة. أو في بعض الحالات ننفق الكثير من الجهد والوقت بحثاً عن أوجه القصور في الحياة حتى نتمكن من البقاء بعيدا قدر الإمكان.
بطريقة أو بأخرى، تدور حياتنا حول "الاخطاء".

في حدثنا هذا العام، سوف نفهم جميع أنواع مختلفة من الاخطاء. ربما ستجد الحل، ربما لا، ولكن بالتأكيد سوف تغادر هذا الحدث مع منظور جديد تماما عن اسباب تصرفاتنا و افكارنا
