The Chester Beatty – as Ireland’s only museum with a primary focus on global artistic heritage – explores themes around how its collections and programmes reflect contemporary cultural diversity and identity.
The Chester Beatty seeks to engage multi-lingual speaking tour guides to promote its exhibitions to local culturally diverse communities. Community Ambassadors are native speakers, sensitive to cultural nuances and aware of religious and social traditions. As a result, they represent the museum and the community at the same time. Our ambassadors have the unique ability to excite, inspire and connect with the culturally diverse communities in Ireland. Free public tours in Arabic, Japanese and Mandarin are scheduled on a regular basis.
