CALL FOR PARA SITE'S VOLUNTEER TOUR GUIDES | ART BASEL IN HONG KONG
Feb 21, 2018
Art Basel in Hong Kong
March 29 - 31, 2018
Art Basel in Hong Kong is among the world's premier international art fairs for Modern and contemporary art which provides an in-depth overview of the region’s diversity through both historical material and cutting-edge works by established and emerging artists. In 2018, it will feature 248 premier galleries from 32 countries and territories, half of the participating galleries have exhibition spaces in Asia and the Asia-Pacific region.
Since the show’s inauguration in Hong Kong, Para Site has been organising its public tours, providing insight into some of the featured artists and works. Following the programme's success in previous years, Para Site is looking for enthusiastic individuals interested in contemporary art to join our guided tour programme in 2018. These bilingual volunteers (Cantonese & English or Mandarin & English) will be asked to give guided tours and interact with guests from all around the world during the opening hours of the art show.
The guides will be responsible for sharing information about participating artists and their artworks from selected galleries to groups of 15 people, during one-hour tours. Para Site will provide a training session prior to the art fair. As the guided tours will run through each day of the fair, we hope for a daily commitment of at least 7 hours from the volunteers. In return, Para Site will provide a complimentary ticket to the Vernissage at Art Basel in Hong Kong on March 28, together with our exclusive Para Site publications and tote bag.
If you are interested in joining the programmes, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, CV, and contact details before Sunday, February 21, 2018. Selected individuals will be contacted for an interview.
