Volunteer Opportunity | NGV recruiting Volunteer Guides

ngvLogoThe NGV is recruiting Voluntary Guides to commence training in 2015.

The Voluntary Guides of the National Gallery of Victoria was established in 1967 with the approval of the NGV Council of Trustees. It operates with the expressed aim of providing support to the NGV by assisting the community in understanding and appreciating the NGV and its collections. Since 1968, the NGV Voluntary Guides have been providing daily tours and talks for visitors, providing a link between the NGV and the public, and playing an important role in encouraging and deepening the interest of visitors in NGV collections and exhibitions. The guides are a dedicated team with a comprehensive knowledge of the NGV Collection and a passion for the visual arts. In the coming months a new group of guides will be recruited for a training program commencing in February 2015 and concluding in 2016.

Applications close Monday 27th October.

There will be an Information Evening for prospective applicants on Wednesday 15 October at 6.00pm, in the Clemenger Auditorium, NGV International, 180 St Kilda Road, Melbourne. Entry to the auditorium will be from 5.30pm via the NGV Schools Group entrance, adjacent to the Arts Centre forecourt. Please click here for a map.
