The National Portrait Gallery acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and recognises the continuing connection to lands, waters and communities. We pay our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and to Elders both past and present.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers are warned that this website contains images of deceased persons.

Headhunt!

The National Portrait Gallery is bringing its award-winning Headhunt! mobile application to families and students around the world.  Headhunt@Home is an interactive app designed to encourage children aged 5-15 to take the lead and independently explore the virtual Portrait Gallery, to look closely at the portraits that intrigue them, to investigate the artistic elements of the work and learn about the incredible stories of the people featured. Students will be able to participate in the program from home and connect with their teachers remotely via a unique code, whilst home-schooling families will be able to share the Headhunt report with other family members who are self-isolating. Connecting kids to our portraits, the people in them, and their friends and family; a stimulating, at-home activity for our times!

Headhunt@Home is available for download from the Apple App Store.
