We are grateful to all the volunteers who’ve offered to run workshops. We rely on volunteers to make BiFest Wales a success and to keep entry prices low.

There will be 2 streams of workshops running throughout the day:

  • Workshops on bisexual issues and topics, activism, campaigns, and other topics
  • Games, getting to know you, and craft workshops

The first workshops we have confirmed for 2018 are:
All about bisexuality
An introductory workshop at the start of BiFest Wales talking about different definitions of bisexuality, the bi community and events in Wales and the UK. Followed by a chance to ask those awkward questions you always wanted to, but didn’t feel comfortable to ask or didn’t know who to ask or anything you want to know or discuss.

Trans* and Bi Agony Aunt
Roxy Williams, Trans Coordinator (Unity) and Foxy Roxy Reviews (Youtube) – a fun, interactive session with an introductory question and answer, followed by groups of participants having a go at answering trans* and bi themed agony aunt letters. At the end of the session you’ll have a chance to write your own letter to the trans* and bi agony aunt and have it answered by the group.

Getting involved and having your say
Ever wondered how the National Assembly for Wales and Welsh Government work? Ever wanted to know how you can get heard by Welsh and local government? This workshop will introduce you to how you can get involved and have your say at the Welsh and local levels. There’ll be an opportunity to ask your questions. Jointly run between Ele, Bi Cymru/Wales and Laura Price from the Assembly Commission.


Meeting people at the train station
Our volunteer, Sarah, has offered to meet people at Swansea train station before BiFest Wales.
She’ll be holding a sign saying BiFest Wales
Sarah will be at Swansea train station from around 11:20am until 12:15pm to meet people off the trains.
