All Events

Peer Connect Groups

Our Peer Connect groups give members the opportunity to connect virtually with like-minded people. Each peer group is catered to a different interest or topic. We have groups for everything from gardening and music, to assistive technology and parenting. These groups meet regularly and welcome people from all backgrounds and experience levels who are interested in the topic.

BCA Conversations

Informal feedback sessions held on Thursdays on an ad hoc basis, from 7:30-8:30pm AEST. These virtual meet-ups provide a casual environment for members to connect with people from across the country, discuss various topics, and provide valuable feedback.

Trivia Night 

Every Saturday from 8:00 – 9:00pm, BCA holds a Trivia Night featuring guest hosts and new categories each week. Join us for a casual night of fun and exciting games.

BCA Constitution Update

After extensive consultation with our members, the BCA board has agreed to make a number of changes to the organisation’s Constitution. An upcoming Special General Meeting will be held for members to approve these amendments to the Constitution.

BCA Welcome

Blind Citizens Australia New Member Welcome Forums are held three times per year to give new members a deeper understanding of the work that BCA does and the resources that are available to them as BCA members. 

BCA Inform

Held on the first Tuesday of every month, BCA Inform sessions are an engaging and fun round-table discussion focusing on a new topic each month. BCA Inform gives members the opportunity to engage in discussion with their peers, learn, and hear from guest speakers. BCA staff also often provide updates on various projects.

BCA Connect 2023 

Last year, BCA Connect on Policy gave members the opportunity to share their thoughts on BCA’s current and future work. During our conference, members made suggestions on things they would like the organisation to address or focus on; from systemic advocacy to project ideas, peer support opportunities and anything else that promoted connecting, empowering and informing people who are blind or vision impaired.
