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.

This year Watt Space is celebrating 30 years as an inspirational cultural hub for our students and community. In 2019 the gallery welcomes an extended student internship program to support its exciting and diverse calendar of exhibitions.
