Digital Art Gallery

Cafe & Bar

This Gallery and Archive represents 24 years of work that Watershed has co-created, partnered on and commissioned. It presents work that spans the period of time when we started talking of a digital revolution – the democratisation of artistic and creative activity from across our communities in its many and varied forms, to more recent work that explores creativity as we look to a more uncertain future.
