The Whole Earth Festival recognizes it has had a history of cultural appropriation in previous years. We understand that this has made students on the campus extremely uncomfortable and has deterred them, particularly students of color from attending the Festival. We are actively aiming to eliminate any forms of appropriation at our Festival this year, and for years to come.
Cultural appropriation is the disrespectful or inappropriate (intentional or accidental) adoption of any practice, item, custom, tradition, or idea from a culture/group apart from one's own. This could be wearing a Native American headdress when one is not Native American, wearing an Indian bindi or a sari for aesthetic purposes, or wearing traditional Mexican or Native American clothes as Halloween costumes.
Appropriating another's culture is theft, and the Education Team at WEF requires that all of our applicants are informed that we will not tolerate appropriation of any kind. Any knowledge that is being shared, any practice being participated in shall not usurp any other culture's traditions, practices, or ways of life.
We reserve the right to ask any applicant to leave the Festival if they engage in appropriation of items, practices, activities that are not their own.
We hope to create a safe, inclusive, and memorable space for everyone that comes to our Festival.
