The Center for Creative Connections (C3) is an experimental, dynamic learning environment that provides interactive encounters with works of art and artists. C3 volunteers act as hosts and welcome visitors, answer their questions, and personalize their Museum experience by providing information on the Museum's collection, programs, and activities. In addition, volunteers manage the C3 space by organizing and maintaining the C3 area, enforcing good Museum behavior, observing visitor flow, and prepping program and activity supplies. Volunteers also lead activities in the galleries and assist with special events such as Late Nights.
We are currently accepting applications for the C3 volunteer program. Volunteers attend mandatory trainings at the Museum beginning in June. Three-hour volunteer shifts are available Tuesday-Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Thursdays from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., and selected Fridays from 6:00 p.m. to midnight. To request an application, contact Rhiannon Martin at rmartin@DMA.org or 214-922-1331. Volunteer applications are due Friday, May 31.

The desire to communicate the power of art to others is the main requirement to become a docent. After completing a yearlong training program consisting of lectures, gallery talks, and workshops led by Museum staff and outside experts, docents conduct weekly tours for groups of visitors ranging from elementary school students to adult visitors.
We are now accepting applications for the docent program for the 2013-2014 school year. If you have questions about the docent program, or to request an application, contact Shannon Karol at skarol@DMA.org or 214-922-1842.
