Usage of EDT Equipment
All equipment purchased by the EDT Department is for use by EDT students. The equipment is either permanently installed within EDT teaching rooms, or is stored and available for booking by EDT students.
For APA productions the first priority should be to make use of equipment from the Venues Dept. NOT EDT equipment.
For EDT classes, projects and productions or non APA events (outside of the APA) with EDT students involvement, then it is more the other way around, making use of EDT equipment first and asking venues to help out if needed. These projects have first priority to access EDT equipment.
When using EDT equipment there are specific procedures that the student must follow, as outlined under the EDT equipment booking Terms and Conditions outlined on this page.
