Event Q&A Guidelines

Town Hall staff moderate question and answer sessions to maintain a civil, informed, and respectful platform for all opinions.

We want Town Hall Seattle to be a place not just for information, but for a conversation. We appreciate hearing the thoughtful and probing questions that are posed by our audience members to featured speakers of Town Hall-produced events. It’s the interaction between the artists and speakers on our stages and you that makes Town Hall so unique and valuable to the fabric of our city and our community.

To increase meaningful conversation and provide a positive experience for all audience members, and in order to give everyone a chance to ask their questions after an event, we ask that you use the following guidelines:

  • Please keep your question brief and in the form of a question. Question & answer sessions are not an appropriate time for you to share your personal opinions or comments. Ask the speaker a brief question that directly addresses the information presented. If you have follow-up questions or comments, consider writing to the speaker via their website or social media, or, if appropriate, you can talk with them briefly during the book signings that usually take place after an event.
  • Please be respectful to other event attendees, event presenters/performers, and staff members in your word choice, and avoid inflammatory or offensive comments. This includes comments that:
    • Are considered likely to disrupt, provoke, attack or offend others, or are racist, sexist, homophobic, sexually explicit, abusive or otherwise objectionable.
    • Contain swear words or other language likely to offend.
    • Break the law or condone or encourage unlawful activity.
    • We hope you’ll appreciate and stand by these guidelines. Our goal is to make Town Hall Seattle a place for both information and feedback. What you say matters.

We base our guidelines on industry standards.
