The Spence Watson Archive Project involved the creation of a series of participatory digital artworks using heritage and archival material from Tyne & Wear Archive (TWAM) and other local collections. Concerning the Spence Watson family and their time living at Bensham Grove House, Gateshead, the project is a collaboration with artists and community members working with local community organisations and a local school, to develop digital and heritage art and events inspired by the archive material. The results of each workshop were displayed in the house itself (now a community centre) as well as online.
