Become a Mingei Docent Ambassador

Being a Mingei Docent Ambassador is a volunteer opportunity for those interested in sharing their love of art and culture with our diverse audiences while developing public communication and facilitation skills. Mingei Docent Ambassadors are a catalyst to discovery, helping visitors to develop a deeper understanding of folk art, craft, and design and how these are relevant to their lives through guided tours and conversation.

Applications for the 2024 Docent Training Class have now closed. The next training will take place in Summer 2025.
