Call for Volunteer Docents
The McMichael Canadian Art Collection

The McMichael Canadian Art Collection is seeking motivated individuals to serve as Volunteer Docents. The ideal candidate is people-oriented and enthusiastic about introducing school groups and adults to Canadian art and the McMichael Collection.

What does a docent do?
McMichael Docents and Educators provided tours for more than 30,000 students and adult visitors in the 2015/16 school year.  Our teaching philosophy emphasizes an interactive approach, encouraging an exchange between the visitor and the Docent/ Educator. Tours provide exciting opportunities to view a variety of Special Exhibitions at the McMichael, as well as the Permanent Collection, including The Group of Seven and their contemporaries, as well as artwork by Indigenous and Inuit artists.

The McMichael Canadian Art Collection has two Docent groups:

School Programs Docents are responsible for conducting tours for school groups. These tours are highly interactive and include hands-on activities. Docents may choose also to be involved in facilitating studio programs led by McMichael Educators. School programs run from September-June, with the exception of school holidays. School program Docents are required to attend group meetings every third Monday, and to provide five hours per week of availability for tours.

Gallery Tour Docents are responsible for giving Permanent Collection and Special Exhibition tours to adult and special interest groups, primarily on weekends.  Gallery Tour Docents are required to attend group meetings every third Saturday from September-June, and to provide 8 hours of weekend availability per month.

What type of training does a docent receive?
Before starting to tour, Docents are required to attend Provisional Docent training sessions, which are scheduled between January-April. These sessions introduce Docents to the McMichael Permanent Collection, as well as touring techniques, approaches and methods that will engage visitors. During this training period, Docents also shadow experienced Docents/Educators and complete assigned reading associated with the exhibitions. The learning continues even after training is complete, as Docents take part in group meetings that function as ongoing training sessions. These meetings touch on art history, art criticism, aesthetics and art-making, as well as strategies for leading an effective and enjoyable tour. 

After completing their training, docents work independently. They are expected to be reliable, prepared and well-versed in the material they will be covering in their tour. Acting as a Docent requires a training, preparation and commitment, and applicants should be prepared for the time commitment involved.

If you are interested in becoming a Docent at the McMichael, please complete a Volunteer application form via http://www.mcmichael.com/support/volunteer.cfm and forward with
your resume electronically or via hard copy to Human Resources: hr@mcmichael.com
