The Gallery is dedicated to connecting communities near and far with art, artists and the national collection.
Developed in collaboration with communities and cultural organisations around Australia, our outreach programs enable audiences across the country to engage with the National Gallery, our collections, exhibitions and programs.
We work with cultural and community organisations, schools and partners to develop tailored learning experiences. We connect with communities through the National Gallery’s touring exhibition program which brings artworks from the national collection and associated learning opportunities to communities around the country.
Our outreach programs can include talks, workshops, tours, training, professional development and unique art experiences with opportunities to connect in person and online.
We develop programs and activities for:
- Community participation
- Audiences with disability or access requirements
- Primary, secondary and tertiary students
- Education and cultural sector professionals

The National Gallery’s Outreach program is supported by the John T Reid Charitable Trusts.
