Sign up as Docent

Friends of the Museums (FOM) are a volunteer, non-profit society devoted to offering guiding services to Singapore’s museums and cultural institutions. STPI partners with FOM to provide a training programme for docents to guide public tours and school tours to primary, secondary and tertiary students.

Guiding at STPI is a unique experience. Unlike Singapore’s heritage museums, there is no permanent collection; instead docents typically guide five or six new exhibitions per year to the public. The tours aim to develop visitor understanding of print and paper techniques used in creating the artworks and also include a visit to the workshop where visitors can see first-hand the presses, artists, print and papermakers at work.

As a docent at STPI, you will work with STPI’s Education and Outreach team, benefit from practical workshop experiences from STPI’s own print and papermakers, gain insight into the works shown by attending gallery walkthroughs and talks with the artists-in-residence and have opportunities to explore other visual art institutions and galleries in Singapore.

Become part of an extraordinary team of docents who are passionate about STPI, contemporary art, print and paper. The next STPI Docent Training will be conducted in September 2019.
