MOCA Jacksonville | Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville


Docents are constant advocates in our community for the arts. Group visitors form a lasting impression of MOCA Jacksonville through their docent tours. In this high-visibility capacity, a docent’s qualifications, training, and performance are extremely important. A docent must enjoy working with people of diverse interests, backgrounds, and ages and be able to conduct tours with flexibility, diplomacy, and a willingness to accept new challenges.

People who have an interest in community service, the arts, and the general public are welcome. Individuals are especially encouraged to apply who have done undergraduate or graduate work in education or art education, early childhood or elementary education, or classroom teaching experience, as well as those individuals who have professional or volunteer experience in nontraditional education but possess knowledge of facilitating or have an interest in inquiry-based learning.

This intensive program will offer you a behind-the-scenes look at the interworking’s of an art museum and provide you with a thorough introduction to contemporary art, history, and culture.
