Southwest Love Fest Crew

Join the crew for SWLF 2024!! We are taking applications now for crew members for next year. Our vision for this coming year is a lateral or non-hierarchical collective structure. This is to create a greater sense of community, collective empowerment and to spread the load of the labor for the conference. Southwest Love Fest is a big conference with many moving parts, so many folks are needed to pull it off! Crew is different than volunteers as crew members are decision makers and project leads. Volunteers are folks doing tasks at the direction of project leads and are not making decisions or managing projects. Crew can sign up for as many or as few projects as you have capacity for.

   -Individuals who are aligned with the mission of SWLF to grow inclusive community.
   -Reliable communication (Is clear when they are available, can communicate about capacity or supports needed, etc.)
   -Be able to follow through on chosen projects
   -Someone with time & capacity to do projects - most projects are done prior to SWLF, but many also require you to attend the entire weekend + any followup duties after the conference
   -Diverse representation based on race, ableness, neurodiversity, sexual orientation, gender identity, body diversity, etc
   -Folks who are excited to co-create and grow SWLF!


    -Crew automatically receives a free conference pass for themself
    -Additional compensation is based on hours worked above minimum hours (to be determined by crew) which could be a profit share (estimated to be up to $200+), additional tickets, hotel room, etc.
    -Marginalized staff members are paid a slightly higher profit share as a micro-reparation
