People who go to BiCon create the programme by offering sessions and entertainment. There are usually 70 or more sessions and entertainments across the weekend. Not everyone attends all or even any of these sessions, but there is always a wide variety for those who do want to. These sessions are in the form of:
On Thursday there are no sessions. This is a day for everyone to arrive in their own time, get settled in to the accommodation and relax in the evening.
Friday is our first full day of sessions. There are multiple workshops running at any one time, meaning that you can pick and choose what you’re interested in. Sessions will last for an hour and fifteen minutes, although you do not have to stay for the full length, there will also be breaks between sessions.
Saturday is another full day of sessions.
This year BiCon will be hosting an amazing panel discussion with influential bi activists on Saturday (3rd August). Click here for more information.
Sunday there are limited or no sessions, allowing for a relaxing morning and time to pack up and say goodbye to another wonderful BiCon.
Sessions are run by anyone who wants to, if you are interested in running a session or require more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org
