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.
