The National Portrait Gallery was established by the National Portrait Gallery of Australia Act 2012 (the Act). The functions and powers of the Gallery, the Minister, the Board, the Chairman and the Director are outlined in the Act. The Minister for the Arts has portfolio responsibility for the NPG. The NPG operates as a statutory authority under the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (PGPA Act).

The purpose of the National Portrait Gallery is to increase the understanding and appreciation of the Australian people – their identity, history, culture, creativity and diversity – through portraiture.

A Portrait Gallery should be a place where the national story unfolds with clarity, and without complacency or self-satisfaction. A National Portrait Gallery should be a place where successive generations find inspiration in the mythic and/or heroic dimensions of our national heritage so as to build and extend these in perpetuity. A National Portrait Gallery should also present a broad and variegated picture of Australian life, national distinction and attainment with multiple points of access, and several grand themes and defining harmonies. We aspire to be the soul of the nation.

The National Portrait Gallery is a dramatic and culturally rich venue for your next event. Our elegant building has the greatest respect for the local environment, natural light and human proportions. And it is home to the national collection of portraits. Invite your guests to come face to face with the famous, the infamous and the sometimes forgotten icons of Australian history.

The Gallery features multiple flexible event spaces which can cater to any style of event, including breakfasts, seminars, conferences, workshops, launches, meetings, cocktail receptions, seated dinners and wedding ceremonies and receptions. Many spaces can be used simultaneously to create a vibrant event your guests will remember.
