Karma Patrol Volunteer Meeting on Thursday 4//16 at 7:30 PM at Zinfandel Lounge!
The Whole Earth Festival (WEF) is a free event that began in 1969 when an art class taught by Jose Arguelles held an “Art Happening” on the University of California, Davis campus. The students used art to teach visitors about activism, wellness and the environment in an interactive and creative way. The Art Happening created an educational process that dared to transcend the typical system of standardized tests and impersonal lectures, promoting instead a culture of cooperative and participative learning.
Following the United Nations’ declaration of “Earth Day” in 1970, the second “Art Happening” (1971) was renamed “Whole Earth.” Later, Whole Earth Festival was sponsored by the Associated Student’s Experimental College and is today a self-sufficient unit of ASUCD. The festival has evolved over four decades into an enormous zero waste event promoting an eco-friendly spirit occurring every Mothers’ Day Weekend.
