The Natus programme, delivered in the Wigan STEAM gallery, is a two-year programme of exhibitions, residencies, commissions, and events, intended to support early career artists and enable the local community to have high quality art experiences.

We exhibit artwork by emerging artists which makes links to STEM subjects, with the aim of demonstrating the many links being made between creativity and science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Alongside all of our exhibitions we provide interactive engagement materials, perfect for families to explore the artwork together and get creative, and many of the exhibiting artists are also delivering workshops through our Art Lab programme, providing further opportunity for people to have unique creative experiences.
