Discussion Group Program

Welcome to WEA Sydney’s Discussion Group Program! The DGP has been part of WEA Sydney’s wider educational program for over 20 years, providing an exciting alternative to our regular classroom courses held in Bathurst Street, in Sydney’s CBD, through the distribution of study materials to groups of students based throughout New South Wales, and in some cases beyond.

The WEA Discussion Group Program is based on the formation of small, friendly home-based groups (minimum 6 people, maximum 15) – wishing to meet regularly to discuss and learn, and enjoy the active exchange of ideas and with a wide variety of topics on from history and literature to philosophy and social sciences, and thus dovetails exactly with WEA Sydney’s over-arching Mission, the provision of opportunities for students to study widely and objectively in the arts, humanities and sciences.
