Docents help to facilitate a richer, more rewarding experience for visitors to The Ringling by creating conversation-based tours centered on The Ringling’s collections and specials exhibitions.
A significant commitment is required to be a docent at The Ringling. In addition to the initial training course, docents take part in regularly scheduled continuing education training on tour techniques, the collections, and special exhibitions. They also participate in quarterly general meetings and commit to providing 75 hours of service annually.
