Museum Educator  


The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures furthers the understanding, celebration, and preservation of cinema through inclusive and accessible exhibitions, screenings, programs, initiatives, and collections. Welcoming visitors from Los Angeles and around the world, the Museum works in active partnership with motion picture artists and specialists, scholars, staff, and diverse communities to contextualize and challenge dominant narratives around cinema, inspiring discourse, connection, joy, and discovery.

Reporting to the Senior Director, Education and Public Engagement, you will bring your knowledge, expertise, and teaching experience in order to provide exceptional and high-quality programs to our visitors. The department of education and public engagement will lead a variety of types of museum education programs including school tours, teen workshops, studio activities on weekends, and accessibility programs. These programs will center our visitors, whether they’re youth, intergenerational families, or teens, and be led using inquiry-based methods and hands-on explorations to facilitate dialogue, transfer technical skills, and encourage empathy, listening, and understanding of multiple perspectives and views on film content. Drawing from our exhibition content and ongoing film screenings, you will feel comfortable discussing films from a historical or technical perspective and be adept at running sessions in a recording studio or using audio/video digital media to create short films.
