The Ambassador Program of Kunstmuseum Basel is a volunteering-based initiative to foster stronger ties between the arts and our international Basel community. Our aim is to connect individuals passionate about the arts and integrate them into the rich fabric of art, culture and society in Basel. By joining the international Kunstmuseum community, Ambassadors get a unique opportunity to not only become a force shaping the museum experience but also cultivate their love for art and gain access to an exclusive set of cultural events. Ambassadors can get involved through a variety of diverse artistic and cultural volunteering opportunities at the Kunstmuseum Basel – according to their interests, experiences, skills and time.

Projects include:

  • supporting the museum’s public programs such as openings, workshops, special events (event-based support)
  • assisting the staff of the museum with strategic projects, event/project planning and design, realization of targeted marketing programs (skill-based support)
  • augmenting the museum programs by organizing new events and platforms that broaden the cultural and social scope and appeal

Ambassadors will profit from a set of benefits such as:

  • Invitation to public openings covering exhibitions and special programs
  • Free admission to the permanent collection galleries and reduced entry for special exhibitions
  • Invitation to the yearly Ambassador Program special welcome including Meet & Greet with staff of the Kunstmuseum
  • Invitation to Ambassador Program gatherings, including a special-recognition event
  • Reductions of entry fees and tickets for public programs (parties, receptions, gatherings)
  • Special conditions for guided group tour and workshop rates
  • 15% discount at the Museum Shop
  • 10% discount at the Museum Bistro
