WATT SPACE GALLERYNorthumberland House

School programs


Watt Space Gallery has a range of services for schools, including guided tours and Professional Development workshops. Exhibiting students from the University of Newcastle staff the Gallery and are available for artist talks on request.

The Gallery has a large floor area which is ideal for lunch in the event of wet weather. Arrangements can be made for Watt Space to open outside normal hours on request.

There are three booking options:

Guided tour
Guided tours can be devised to suit your needs. Tours should be booked at least two weeks in advance. Special content can be included in the tour by request.

An unguided visit
Just let the Gallery know when you are coming, and we can ensure that other events do not interfere with your visit.

Professional practice workshops
Designed for year 11/12 students, the workshops cover areas such as exhibition development and installation, press releases and invitations. They are presented by the Manager of the Gallery. Support material is supplied to students for further discussion.
