NEOS – North East Open Studios

NEOS – North East Open Studios

We welcome artists to use our space for NEOS!


NEOS is the biggest open studios event in Scotland. Becoming a member means you have an annual entry in thier all year round Artists and Makers Book and are part of a huge collective of creatives around the North East! Some 29,000 copies of the directory are distributed widely across the North East of Scotland by our members.

In addition, the NEOS Committee ensures that the book is available in art galleries, tourist information offices, libraries and at major art events in the North East. We also have an online version with search facilities, which makes your entry more accessible to our enquiring public.

Being a member of NEOS means that you are given the inspiration and support to enhance your artistic practice.


To support local artists/ organisations who may not have a studio or location for the period of NEOS, we invite artists to use MAC for this time.

If you would like to enquire about using MAC as your location within NEOS, feel free to contact with the subject line ‘NEOS at MAC’.

The deadline was adjusted due to time constraints. We recognise the challenges artists may face in securing an alternative venue within the short timeframe we provided. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Our deadline to enquire about using our space at Moray Art Centre is the 13th March 2024 .
