Share your love of art, community and nature

The Robert Bateman Centre is seeking enthusiastic, people-oriented individuals to join our dedicated team of docents – volunteers who share an interest in introducing children and adults to the inspirational world of Robert Bateman. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about our environment, and to share your love of learning with visitors.

What does a docent do?

Docents lend their acquired knowledge of Robert Bateman, his art, his inspirations and The Bateman Foundation with visitors to the Robert Bateman Centre.

What type of training does a docent need?

New docents will attend a docent training session to be introduced to The Robert Bateman Centre collection and basic touring techniques. Docents-in-training are also asked to further their knowledge by conducting personal research on the topics covered in the training sessions.
