NEOS was primarily set up to provide a focus in the year for arts & craft practitioners to interface directly with the public. Formed in 2003, we provide an informal contact network for artists, gallery-owners and makers, and help the public access the wealth of creative talent throughout the North East of Scotland, winning the Northern Lights Tourism Award 2007 for best Aberdeenshire Tourism Initiative.The event serves to engage wider audiences in all aspects of art; to grow small-scale art and craft business in the north east of Scotland, and to provide a cohesive network of professional artists and makers. In 2012 there were an estimated 15,000 visitors to the 286 participants, confirming that there is a thirst from the public to see and experience creative practice in the North East of Scotland.
NEOS is being asked to help find artists and makers to participate in new venues and creative outlets.
