McMullen Gallery Guide 18 yrs+

Do you enjoy art and want to share your passion for it with others? A Gallery Guide volunteer is the first person to be seen upon entering the Gallery and as such he or she plays an important role in the perception of the Gallery and the artists whose work is on exhibition there.

Some duties of a Gallery Guide include: warmly welcoming visitors; answering visitor inquiries about the gallery and the current exhibition; and ensuring the security and safety of the artwork.

The volunteer should have a high level of comfort with, acceptance of, and ability to engage a diverse visitor population which will include patients, their families, and hospital staff. The volunteer should be sensitive to the care and comfort needs of visitors and expect some regular patient contact. Volunteers are also required to have a good command of the English language (both speaking and writing).
