If you are a University of Toronto student, you have the opportunity to join our team! The DMG is committed to providing students with hands-on, professional gallery experience through our participation in U of T’s work-study and Experiential Education programs.
As our gallery attendants, DMG work-study students are the public face of the gallery and the first point of contact with our audiences. Their primary focus is to animate DMG exhibitions, providing information about artists and discussing the artworks presented with gallery visitors. Work-study students also have the opportunity to assist gallery staff with a wide range of gallery activity, from installation to finances to marketing, providing them with valuable insight and hands-on experience in the day-to-day operations of a public gallery.
HOW TO APPLY
DMG work-study positions are hired in September for the fall and winter semester, and in April for the summer semester. Positions are open to all registered undergraduate and graduate University of Toronto students.
The DMG regularly offers both short- and long-term placements to U of T students at both the undergraduate and graduate level. Student interns are involved in almost every area of gallery activity, from working with exhibiting artists during installation of their work to researching the Permanent Collection to assisting with grant applications. They also develop and execute special projects for the gallery according to their specific interests.
