WATT SPACE GALLERYBANNER

Watt Space Gallery

Contemporary and dynamic, Watt Space operates in the University’s Newcastle City precinct in an award winning re-purposed civic building, Northumberland House. Its heritage facade opens to industrial style galleries within, designed by UON alumnus Andrew Donaldson.

Watt Space has acted as an inspirational cultural hub for our students and community for almost 30 years. In 2018 the gallery welcomes a new, talented student committee and an extended student internship program to support its exciting and diverse calendar of exhibitions.

CURRENT EXHIBITION

Fable: the art and heart of storytelling

FABLE

The culture of storytelling spans thousands of years, from Indigenous story, art and songlines to contemporary poetry, microfiction and the social media sphere. When we share our stories - whether in written, spoken, painted, sculpted or filmed form or in bodily expression through song or dance – we share part of ourselves and entrust it to an audience. Fable: the art and heart of storytelling is a collaboration of artists with stories to tell, investigating the transformative and connective nature of the storytelling ritual across mediums and generations.
