Open Call for Para Site’s Volunteer Tour Guides | Art Basel Hong Kong 2019

Jan 25 – Feb 22, 2019

Art Basel Hong Kong is among the world's premier international art fairs for Modern and contemporary art providing an in-depth overview of the region’s diversity through both historical material and cutting-edge works by established and emerging artists.

This year, 242 of the world’s top galleries over 30 countries and territories will gather amidst Hong Kong for Art Basel’s seventh edition in Asia, half of the participating galleries once again have exhibition spaces in Asia and Asia-Pacific.

Para Site’s Guided Tour Programme is recruiting our volunteer tour guides for Art Basel Hong Kong 2019. Individuals over the age of 18 and bilingual (Cantonese & English or Mandarin & English) who are also interested in Modern and contemporary art with good communication and presentation skills, team spirit, research ability, and enthusiastic capability is welcome.

The tour guides will be leading one-hour guided tour(s) of 10-15 guests to share information about participating artists and their artworks from selected galleries and interact with guests from all around the world during the opening hours of the art fair:

29 March (Friday) : 13:00 – 20:00

30 March (Saturday) : 13:00 – 20:00

31 March (Sunday) : 11:00 – 18:00

To prepare the team for the event, Para Site will provide a briefing and training session prior to the art fair. As the guided tours will run throughout each day of the fair, we hope for a daily commitment of at least 7 hours from each volunteer throughout the three-day event. To show our appreciation, Para Site will offer each tour guide a complimentary ticket which admits two persons to Art Basel Hong Kong’s Vernissage on Wednesday, 28 March, together with an exclusive Para Site T-shirt and a tote bag.

Please send us an email with your name, CV and contact details (i.e. phone number and email address) to guidedtour@para-site.art before Feb 22, 2019 (Fri).  Selected individuals will be contacted for an interview in early March.
