Searching for Guides

The Confederation Centre Art Gallery is looking for volunteers for the summer docent program beginning in early June. The summer is always a bustling time across the gallery’s seven exhibition spaces and with 2017 promising another banner year for Island tourism, what better opportunity is there to interpret visual art and connect with visitors from around the world.


A docent is a volunteer guide who gives gallery-goers insight into the exhibitions, artists, and Confederation Centre at large. If you are interested in the arts and enjoy meeting people and telling stories, this is the perfect volunteer opportunity for the summer months.

Being a docent is a great opportunity to share one’s love and knowledge of the remarkable permanent collection and exhibitions that the Island’s major art gallery has to offer.

The Gallery is looking for individuals to volunteer up to six hours throughout the week, from the beginning of June to the end of August. A background or interest in visual arts is valuable though not essential and bilingualism is also an asset.
