Welcome to
The Watson Art Centre

Our mission is to foster arts, culture, and heritage in Dauphin and surrounding area.

Built in 1905, the Watson Art Centre (WAC) originally housed city hall, which included council chambers, a general office and an engineer’s department. It also held a reading room, the fire department, police headquarters and the jail. 

Nowadays, we are proud to be a thriving venue for the arts. We host live music, theatre, banquets, and more.
