DYT ONLINE GUIDE
AUDIENCE INFORMATION AND SAFEGUARDING FOR ONLINE PERFORMANCES
Because we’re DYT and this is a show created with, by and for young people, we have a duty of care to our members and have created the following audience interaction guide for our digital events. We hope it’s helpful.
You will receive a separate email with a link to access the webinar performance on Zoom in advance.
The performance will begin at 8pm sharp, please log on to Zoom and be ready to join us at 8:00pm.
In webinar format, you will not be able to turn on your video and will be muted unless the host unmutes you.
If you no longer require a ticket, please email firstname.lastname@example.org as far ahead as possible so that we can reallocate your place.
WHAT TO PREPARE AHEAD OF TIME
For the best experience we recommend downloading Zoom to a computer, tablet or smartphone (we don’t recommend using a smart TV).
Make sure you are familiar with how Zoom works and check if the software needs updating well before the event as it can take time to download.
Zoom uses up a fair amount of bandwidth so you may find it helpful to not run other programmes and downloads at the same time as experiencing this show.
If you are using a tablet you may need to double tap the screen for full view.
We recommend listening to this show through headphones or external speakers for the best possible experience – and to check everything is working beforehand.
LOGGING IN TO ZOOM
In keeping with our safeguarding policy, we can only admit people whose name and email address matches the details they booked with.
When signing in, please use the name and email you booked with, not the details you would usually use to login to Zoom.
We will be live on zoom for the duration, available to answer your questions or provide a helping hand, using the Q&A function if required.
DURING THE SHOW
Please follow any instructions from the DYT team.
There may be moments of interaction where you may type or speak to everyone – but you choose if you would like to do this, and how much involvement you would like overall.
You will be advised in advance if there are moments where flashing images or footage will briefly be projected on the screen, and some loud noises.
Your manner should be reasonable and appropriate for a shared space.
Be polite and act with consideration for other online users and participants of all ages and backgrounds.
Stay on topic, don’t hijack the performance to discuss your own personal agenda or promote your own event.
We won’t tolerate any kind of hate-speech.
By following the etiquette guidelines we aim not to moderate your participation in the performance. But we will remove you or your comments if you break our community standards.
