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 with over 30,000 exhibitors during that time. 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.
Watt Space has been the festival hub for Crack X since 2016. The place to get a toastie and a beer.
