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.

The next session of Docent Ambassador training will be held in Fall 2023. Applications will open on July 10. For more information please email Shannon Foley at sfoley@mingei.org.
