A full agenda for the day including speaker bios can be found here: https://www.englishfolkexpo.com/folk-talk-live-december-2021/
There will be a 10 minute breaks throughout the day.
We will be using the Zoom Webinar platform. This means that the only people visible on screen will be the speakers and EFEx hosts for the day. If you’ve never used Zoom before, here’s a quick tutorial about how to access it:
Please note that because it’s a webinar, many of the basic features are disabled, including video. The only people on screen will be the panelists and EFEx hosts.
When you log in, you will see three buttons on screen:
1) Chat – use this function if you want to talk to either All Panelists or All Panelists and Attendees. This is a great way to comment on the talks, share your own thoughts and view, as well as introduce yourself to the community participating on the day.
2) Q&A – this is where you can ask the panel questions directly. Questions can either be responded to in writing, or you may be invited to speak and ask your question directly. When this happens, a pop up box will appear on screen inviting you to ‘unmute’ your microphone and ask the panel a question. Please note, all attendees will be able to hear you speaking, but will not be able to see you. Depending on the number of questions, we may not be able to get through all of these.
3) More – this gives you a range of other settings options including disconnecting your audio and minimising the screen.
Parts of Folk Talk Live will be recorded. No attendee information will be publicly available, however if you are invited to ask a question, this question will form part of the recording. We will share content from the day via our Folk Talk Academy platform.
