Propose an Event

Claiming Williams depends on your ideas!

The Claiming Williams Steering Committee reviews proposals and provides logistical and (occasionally) financial support for activities that become part of Claiming Williams Day. These events should somehow relate to the 2020 theme of Claiming Williams, “Reconceiving, Regrounding, and Reclaiming” and may involve artists, speakers, performers, and facilitators from many fields (literature, athletics, theater, art, politics, and others), both from within and outside the Williams community. (For examples of past proposals and events, see Archives.) The Claiming Williams Steering Committee reviews proposals and provides logistical and financial support for activities that become part of Claiming Williams Day.

Preliminary proposals for Claiming Williams 2020 due by November 12, 2019.

Final proposals for Claiming Williams 2020 are due by December 3, 2019.

How to submit your proposal

If you have an idea for an event in mind, but don’t yet have the full details, fill out the preliminary proposal form by November 12 and the committee will help you form your proposal.

Once you know exactly what you are planning and have the details worked out, submit an event proposal form no later than December 3, 2019.

Claiming Williams occasionally supports events that occur at times other than Claiming Williams Day. Contact the Claiming Williams co-chairs to find out if we can support your event.
