Give Now and help our not-for-profit organisation

While Watch This Space is supported by the NT Government to operate on a day-to-day basis, our projects are self-funded and are often undertaken with little to no funding. More assistance would mean stronger projects with more effective and influential artistic, cultural and social outcomes. It would mean more support for our artists and their work.

Our organisation strives to provide as much assistance as possible to the groups and individuals whose practices enrich our communities, and your support could make a huge difference.

Your support, whether small or large, will be making the greatest difference.

Artists in the Paper

WTS recently housed three artists from Melbourne for its Travelling Artist in Residency program. Ellah Blake, Nic Diprose and Sienna Thornton held an intimate exhibition at the space, Sunset Viewing Area, at the end of the residency, attracting a great audience who seemed to thoroughly enjoy the show. Nic spoke to the local paper about their experience in Central Australia, giving a bit of insight into the work created and what to expect at the Closing event.
