ADULT Opportunities


Gallery animateurs help enliven our exhibition spaces, using their personality to engage with our visitors and help build a memorable museum experience!

In this role, you’ll build skills in museum education, visitor service and public speaking, by discussing Kusama’s work informally with patrons waiting in line to enter the famous infinity rooms. Full training is provided. We’re looking for volunteers who would describe themselves as enthusiastic and outgoing. If you’re passionate about Kusama and spreading that love, please apply! Background in public speaking, hospitality, theatre or education a plus, but not required. Volunteers will be invited to attend a free Yayoi Kusama staff and volunteer preview, and enjoy complimentary admission to the AGO throughout the run of the exhibition.

Required Availability: We’re looking for volunteers who can join us for one 3.5 hour shift per week (minimum), Tuesday – Sunday. Morning, afternoon and evening shifts available. Volunteers should be able to join us for the full run of the exhibition, March 3 – May 27, 2018.

Application Deadline: Friday January 19
Please note: We expect a lot of interest in this role. Thank you to everyone who applies: selected candidates will be invited to attend a recruitment session in late January. We’ll reach out in the new year with more details!


Note: we update this site as volunteer positions become available; please check back regularly.

For those of you who have recently applied for a volunteer position: Thank You! We are in process of reviewing applications and we will be in touch with you should you be selected for an interview. Thanks so much for applying to volunteer with the Art Gallery of Ontario.
