Rubin Museum opportunity: Tibetan Medicine Application

Volunteer Opportunity at the Rubin Museum of Art
Bodies in Balance: The Art of Tibetan Medicine
March 15 – September 8, 2014
Are you passionate about health and interested in museums? If so, the Rubin Museum of Art is looking for friendly and outgoing volunteers to help visitors engage meaningfully with the upcoming exhibition Bodies in Balance: The Art of Tibetan Medicine, on view March 15 through September 8, 2014.
Volunteer Ambassadors will work exclusively with the exhibition and attend hour-long trainings on Thursday evenings at 5:15pm beginning in January and continuing through March 2014. We prefer candidates who can commit to volunteering at least 2-3 hours per week during the sixmonth run of the exhibition.
Bodies in Balance will be the first comprehensive exhibition on the history, theory, and practice of Tibetan medicine. Tibetan medicine is an analytical system with three basic forces that govern the body and mind. The Museum will devote two floors of its galleries to present the remarkable medical paintings, historical and contemporary medical instruments and medicines, along with instructive audio and visual installations. In addition to gallery guides, the Museum will also offer an audio tour and a self-guided questionnaire to help visitors discover which force is dominant in their own constitution and how best to maintain or achieve health.
