what we do
Although we all independently operate in a number of different roles throughout the event industry we come together under the SEED banner to primarily handle Traffic Control and Operations, or in most cases a hybrid of the two. In the Festival realm we refer to it as Perimeter Ops because we tend to manage everything outside of the festival grounds from parking, to shuttles, to campgrounds, to messaging and overall information continuity and delivery
what we really do
We are at our best when the job scale necessitates the use of our entire network. SEED has spent years curating event personnel and forging chemistry between them to create a dynamic team of young professionals who respect each other and get the job done. Our true strength lies in our administrative team and their ability to foster talent and facilitate communication between our whole apparatus. For our larger events we staff upwards of 60 people supported by an equal number of volunteers. The addition of our own internal catering enables us to be our own self-sustaining entity capable of tremendous feats
Gatherings are an essential part of the human experience. Our ability to "Swarm" in large numbers is paramount to our ability to co-exist in dense urban environments where constant friction creates unease and unrest. In the past decade we have seen an exponential rise in Special Events and the "Swarm Economy" and with it more complex models of organization. SEED intends to be at the forefront of this trend, developing and applying new models for an ever changing Market.
SEED holds that it is our job as event specialists to continue to nurture the growth of Swarms and harmonize their function. We fight to reduce areas of unnecessary friction that are more often then not reinforced by convention rather then common sense. We thrive in chaotic conditions and find joy and purpose in implementing the bare minimum amount of order necessary to provide the proper conditions for Swarm success.
First and foremost we are a team. We put the value of humans and their capacity for creativity and harmony at the center of our ethos. It is through the collective efforts of our team that our vision and our mission become possible. Furthermore, we place an overwhelming emphasis on the Natural. Events are becoming a vehicle that is reconnecting us to Mother Nature and our wild selves at a time where it is becoming critical we do so. We honor the wisdom found in the natural world and infuse it into our work.
