The SpaceKeepers (Security) Coordinators are responsible for overseeing that the festival runs smoothly and employing nonviolence as a style of conflict management should conflicts arise at the festival. You will be circulating at the festival to take care of any problems that may arise.

The Whole Earth Festival began in 1969 as a small art class project (“Art Happening”) on the UC Davis Quad to teach community members about activism, wellness, and environmental sustainability in an interactive and creative way. Following the United Nations’ recognition of Earth Day in 1970, the event was renamed as the “Whole Earth Festival” and has since evolved into an enormous, free, student-run event, attracting over 30,000 visitors annually on Mother’s Day Weekend.
