The Broad's Diversity Apprenticeship Program (DAP)

Applications are Now Open for The Broad’s Diversity Apprenticeship Program


The Broad’s Diversity Apprenticeship Program (DAP), in partnership with the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery is a new initiative made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). Together with partner institutions, the DAP promotes a more diverse arts workforce by providing full-time, paid apprenticeships in preparation/art handling. Applications are now open for opportunities at 12 diverse Los Angeles-based nonprofit, commercial and government entities. Applications for this nine-month program, which starts summer 2018, will close on April 18, 2018. Previous preparator or art handler experience is not required. Apply today at thebroad.org/dap.


Being a docent at LAMAG is a great way to learn about contemporary art, meet people with similar interests, and share your knowledge with visitors. Docents are a vital and valued part of the LAMAG team.


LAMAG is committed to building a diverse team and welcomes people who would like to build relationships between the gallery and its audiences.


Docents work in the following area:


Gallery Facilitator

Facilitators are people-focused docents who engage with our visitors and improve their experience by providing appropriate information on the exhibitions on view in the Gallery. Facilitators also help to maintain the Gallery throughout the day, but their primary focus is on helping visitors.

The gallery recruits docents on a rolling basis throughout the year. Please note this is unpaid, volunteer-based opportunity.


If you are interested in this role, please send a 1 page introductory letter to lamag@lacity.org outlining your interests, skills and relevant experience.



The LAMAG Internship Program provides individuals with hands-on experience in working at a contemporary arts institution where they can grow their knowledge and develop their leadership skills, while also providing invaluable support to exhibitions, programs, and staff. The Internship Program offers an opportunity for positive growth as well as an immersive learning environment. LAMAG is committed to building a diverse team and invites people of all talents, ethnicities, cultures, religions, gender identities and sexual orientations to apply. Please note that internships are unpaid.


The gallery recruits interns on a seasonal basis. Please check back for further information on our Fall Internship Program.
