Expression of Interest for IF Oxford 2022
Starting your Expression of Interest for IF 2022
before you get started
IF Oxford 2022 will take place in October (TBC: 7-25 October 2022).
As our audiences have come to expect, activities across topics and formats, using venues, digital and print, will represent a range of cultural and scientific organisations.
We have slightly changed how we build the Festival, based on contributor feedback. This first stage will hopefully streamline the process for you.
Processes for Festival creation:
1. Expression of Interest – this form – as soon as possible
stage development conversation (1-1 call)
as soon as possible
3. Event details confirmation – a second form – DEADLINE: Friday 13 May 2022
4. Programme production – June / July 2022
5. Risk assessments and insurance details – DEADLINE: Friday 16 September 2022
If you want to be involved and have a passion to share your work with thousands of people, tell us now! Whether you have a firm plan for activities or not, the Festival team can work with you to discuss ideas and options.
The original deadline for this form was midday on Thursday 31 March 2022, so please complete as soon as possible.
This Expression of Interest should take around five minutes to complete, so please do it as soon as you are able. This way, we can schedule the development conversation and get to the fun bit…
, this form is not a contract and filling it in does not commit you to being part of the Festival. It is simply a way for you to express your interest in being involved and to start a conversation.

Do you have a clear idea of what you will do in the Festival this October, eg. take part in a multi-participant family zone or run a stand-alone event?
This doesn’t need to be very specific and don’t worry if you do not have a clear plan yet – give us any information about what you might like to do here and we’ll ask you for more detail later.
Are you able to pay your participation fee?
The Festival has to cover marketing, operational and venue costs, so needs to charge most contributors a participation fee of £1,000 per event. If this is a real barrier for your involvement, please indicate in the comments box if you could pay a reduced fee or are requesting the fee to be waived. You might consider a funding application (the Festival team can help you with this).
Have you booked a meeting with Cathy to discuss your involvement in IF 2022?
The next step in the process is to book a video / phone call with Cathy (the Festival Manager) to discuss and develop your ideas into Festival events. You can do this now using this link:
