Navigating the installation and access info
This virtual tour works similarly to Google Maps. You can use the cursor to “click and drag” in order to change your view of the space.
You might find it beneficial to make the installation full screen. You can do this by clicking the three dots in the top right hand corner of the exhibition and selecting the ‘fullscreen’ option.
Mobile users may find it useful to orient their screens to landscape for the best viewing experience.
Click or tap the white arrows to move around the space from one room / section to another.
Click or tap on the white icons in each scene for extra content including videos, photographs, making instructions and more information about specific characters made as part of the project. These icons usually look like a white ‘i’ in a circle.
You can view subtitles to videos that appear in the exhibition. To do this please hover the curser over the video at the bottom right hand side (near to the play and pause button). A text box reading ‘subtitles/closed captions’ should appear. Please click this box and the subtitles should appear automatically.
Viewers using the Safari browser may experience issues when scrolling some of the hotspots. If you encounter this issue we recommend using an alternative browser.

Artists and the commissioning organisation involved in this project want to work in flexible, transparent, welcoming ways.
We want to create and share accessible, inclusive opportunities, spaces and support structures for our audiences, our communities, co-authors and for one another.
We know that this is an ongoing process and that we won't always get everything right for everyone all the time.
We always want to know if there are things we could be doing differently.

Description of the digital space: a digital exhibition space, captured in colour, which contains an interior room and an exterior terrace. In the digital space, you can shift the view 360 degrees similar to viewing things on google maps or in some video game worlds.
The interior room has white walls, a purple tiled ceiling and a bright pink textured paper floor. As you shift around the room there are a couple of sculptures on the wall.
Standing in a half circle, and revealed one by one as you move around the room, are six extravagant looking Drag performers. Completing the other half of the circle are the drag performers again, this time holding a slightly different poses.
The outside terrace space has a grey floor and grey walls. There are lots of plant pots with different plants growing in them, on the wall beside the plants are the words ‘The Dye Garden’.
Dotted among the plants are the same six extravagant drag performers holding various poses, again they appear again as you move around to look as if they are forming a messy circle.
Throughout the exhibition are white clickable icons which are hotspots for information. There are also white clickable arrows which take you to the other room.
