M+ Docent Volunteer Programme

Join the M+ team as a volunteer docent for our upcoming exhibitions.

An M+ tour is not only a way to understand the works on display, but also an opportunity for visitors and docents to engage in an open conversation, to learn together and to share ideas and perspectives.

If you are passionate about learning, sharing, and connecting with the public, it is time to join us as an M+ docent! You will have the opportunity to lead interactive tours that bring our exhibitions and ideas to life.

 

We are recruiting a new group of docents. Please apply if you are:

 

  • A natural storyteller who can help our audiences connect with work in the M+ Pavilion gallery through engaging tours and conversations
  • Someone who has strong communication skills and an ability to understand and be flexible, to respond the needs of different audiences
  • Friendly, cheerful, charismatic, and outgoing
  • A self-motivated learner who is comfortable learning on your own and with others
  • Willing to devote time and effort to M+ tours and the docent team
  • Fluent in spoken Cantonese, English, and/or Mandarin
  • Open to learn new ways of interpretation, methods of facilitation, and flexible approaches to tours
  • Someone who has experience with leading tours, and a relevant academic background or knowledge of art, design, architecture, and moving image—but this is a bonus, not a must
     

Shortlisted applicants will be invited for an interview. Successful candidates are required to participate in our docent training sessions before leading tours.  We ask docents to join us for at least one year.

We offer a moderate stipend to support the cost of transportation. In addition, docents receive invitations to exhibition openings and have the chance to meet artists, curators, and practitioners.
