NEOS 2018

8th to the 16th September

NEOS 2018 is now open for entries: until 31 March 2018

In September each year, our award-winning collective of artists, makers, and designers open their studios to the public. With a diverse range of creatives exhibiting their work, the NEOS event is a unique opportunity to meet and chat with individual artists, see their inspirations and working methods and discover the wealth of talent we have in the North East of Scotland.

Our Open Studios 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. Join NEOS 2018.

2018 is the 15th Anniversary year of North East Open Studios and as part of our continued commitment to encourage creativity and in support of Creative Scotland’s Year of Young People we will be providing 8 bursary places to young artists aged 18 to 26 who would like to take part in NEOS.

If you are a new young artist who would like more information about this year’s bursary programme, an established artist, maker or designer who would like further information about NEOS, please contact us at or sign up for our mailing list to ensure you don’t miss a thing.
