The ICA Tour Guides are a dynamic community of volunteers and key members of the Education Department with a shared interest in the art of our time. Individuals engage in sparking lively conversations while encouraging people of all ages to appreciate and make meaning from contemporary art and culture – without the artspeak.
The ICA Tour Guide Program is inviting enthusiastic, energetic museum-lovers to join the program. Individuals who enjoy conversing with a diverse population of museum visitors and who are passionate about art, creativity, and culture are encouraged to apply. No experience or expertise in art necessary. Guides must be comfortable speaking in public and be a willing lifelong learner with a rich range of personal and professional experiences to engage the public in dynamic and out-of-the-box creative conversations about works on view.
Individuals selected for the Tour Guide program must be able to commit to a weekly two-hour training session every Monday from March 5 through May 21, 2018, and be able to lead a minimum of four tours per month, as well as complete requisite trainings for new exhibitions and required research in preparation for their tours.
