Sessions

Sessions are created and run by BiCon attendees. To run a session email sessions17@bicon.org.uk

Want to run something but not feeling sure? Perhaps you can run it with a friend. Lots of workshops are run by pairs or teams, and it can take the pressure off. Not sure your idea fits? Email us and ask, and have a look at the list below for the sort of things we run. We rarely refuse an idea, and love the diversity of topics and activities we cover.

Workshops can be facilitated discussions, led discussions, activities, practical creative, talks and presentations, Q & As, safe spaces, social spaces… There is no set format. Whatever suits you best.

Most sessions will be 75 minutes long. Sessions of 35 minutes will also be running, for shorter workshops.
