The MAK Center for Art and Architecture is seeking volunteers to join its docent program, helping visitors enjoy the innovative architecture and arts programming at the Schindler House in West Hollywood, as well as special events at the Mackey Apartments in the Miracle Mile and Fitzpatrick-Leland House in the Hollywood Hills.
The MAK Center’s docents volunteer on weekends and work one shift per month, typically providing tours of the Schindler House and MAK Center exhibitions. They are sometimes asked for additional assistance on weekday tours and special events.
The docent program allows people interested in architecture and preservation to contribute to the public stewardship of a historic landmark and gain experience at a nonprofit center for art and architecture dedicated to interdisciplinary programming and outreach. Students majoring in art, architecture and art history may especially benefit from volunteering as docents, but anyone interested is welcome. Docents must commit to attending two docent workshops and volunteering for three docent-led tours per year.
Docents receive a one-year membership to the MAK Center for Art and Architecture, discounts in the MAK Center Bookstore and access to special events and opportunities to tour rarely seen architectural sites in Los Angeles. The MAK Center is accepting applications for the program through Feb. 28, and training will begin in March. For information, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit makcenter.org.
