Museum of Art's "Docent Training Programme" open for applications


The Hong Kong Museum of Art is looking for art enthusiasts to serve as part-time museum guides.

Applications are now open for the "Docent Training Programme 2003".

Established in 1991, the programme has already trained more than 100 people as museum guides. All local residents who are fluent in either Cantonese or English may apply. Preference will be given to art teachers, those with a background or interest in art, and those who are free to guide tours on weekdays. Qualified applicants will be invited for an interview.

Selected applicants must attend about 10 lectures and gallery talks on the museum's collections, exhibition programmes, communication techniques, tour-guiding methods and art conservation from April 24 to mid-August 2003.

Course members will be tested through written examinations, gallery practice and script writing. The Leisure and Cultural Services Department will present certificates to those who pass the examinations, and appointments as docents of the Museum of Art will be offered.

Details of the programme are included in the application form, which can be collected from the Museum of Art or downloaded from its website: Completed applications must be sent to the Museum of Art by March 24 at the latest. For enquiries, please call 2734 2154 or 2734 2149.

The Museum of Art is located at 10 Salisbury Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon. It is open Mondays to Wednesdays and Fridays to Sundays from 10am to 6pm; it is closed on Thursdays, except public holidays.
