application process this year as well as the usual self-proofing.
This is NEOS’s 9th year and its developed into Scotland’s biggest Open
Studios event as well as being one of the biggest in the UK!
We, the new committee wanted to stay true to the original NEOS ethos
and for this year, focus on our strongest feature – our booklet. As
you all know it’s a year-round directory and comprehensive arts
listing, enabling anyone to pick it up and be able to contact artists
and galleries all year round. You will see that we have tightened up
the application criteria to ensure that this is still the case in
We have also streamlined our contact information – our one-stop-shop

the most efficient way to get in contact with us.
The new committee have been working hard to get this all on track for

see the fabulous skills and experience NEOS gets on a voluntary basis
