Organising an Event with OCLW

Are you organising an event related to life-writing? Do you think your event might benefit from association with OCLW?

OCLW can provide a variety of levels of support for an event related to life-writing (an "OCLW Hosted Event"):

  • holding a multi-day conference at OCLW, Wolfson College, Oxford
  • creating a webpage for the event
  • financial assistance (up to £200; priority will be given to events held at OCLW)
  • use of OCLW's secure online payment facilities for payment of registration fees (via the University Stores) 
  • use of OCLW's financial facilities, for accepting cheque payment of registration fees, and for arrangement of payment of invoices relating to the event's costs
  • limited publicity

However, it is important to note that overall administrative responsibility for OCLW Hosted Events remains with the convenors. We request that the event is then described in all publicity as "taking place in association with OCLW", and that appropriate thanks are made.

If you are interested in this prospect, and wish to apply for any type of support, please first download the form on the right and outline your proposal, and then email it to OCLW. Please do not contact OCLW before having submitted a form.

Steve Empson: Exhibition Private View
Sunday 30 September - 12:00pm

PRIVATE VIEW - Sunday 30 September from 12 noon to 3 pm.
Steve Empson observes two coastal communities, in Kent and Co Durham, he considers to be similar in many aspects. Both places are out on a limb, and he sees them as being quirky and attractively at the edge of society. In paintings and drawings of mixed media, he attempts to get across his feeling for these places.
