Volunteer at the Seattle Art Museum!

Docent applications for the Seattle Asian Art Museum are now open. Docents are in the galleries, leading tours, engaging with visitors and helping SAM in our mission to connect art to life.

To apply: Please visit http://visitsam.org/careers or click here to submit an application and be prepared to upload a document with responses to the following short-answer questions. Respond to each prompt in 100-400 words.

  1. Why do you want to become a docent at a museum dedicated to Asian art?
  2. What relevant experience, education, or training would you like to share?
  3. One of the museum’s core values is Equity: We are responsive to cultural communities and experiences, and we think critically about the role art plays in empowering social justice and structural change to promote equity in our society. We are dedicated to racial equity in all that we do. How do you foster an equitable and respectful space for people and their differences?
  4. What do you feel is the role of the Seattle Asian Art Museum in the community, particularly in a region with a significant Asian American history?
