Headhunt! Mobile application for families and self-guided school groups
Video: 1 minute 21 seconds

Headhunt! is a brand new interactive Gallery experience for visitors aged 7-15 (and their adults!) connecting participants with each other and our portraits. The experience encourages the kids to take the lead and independently explore the Gallery, to look closely at the portraits that intrigue them and to delve into the artistic elements of the work and the stories of the people featured. At the end of the exploration, a report is generated containing the content (text, image and audio recordings) created by the participants which is then able to be shared with their teachers/carers/parents during their Gallery visit or as a post-visit activity emailed to the supervising adult.

iPads are provided by the Gallery and the program is freely available daily for families. Bookings are essential for school groups.
