IF Oxford is a science and ideas festival that explores innovative ideas and creative research in and around Oxford, welcoming thousands of visitors to events in dozens of venues across the city.  

The call for event and activity proposals is open now and will close on Thursday 30 April. 

Working with academics, researchers, businesses, charities and community groups with a passion for STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and maths) the Festival will build another exciting, innovative, high quality programme of events.

You can find out more about the Festival by visiting the Event Proposals information page. Whether you'd like to bring a hands-on activity to one of our multi-participant Festival Zones or have an idea for a talk, walk, performance or workshop, you can apply now to be part of the Festival by filling in the Activity Proposal form
