A new creative and social program for teens 13-18, proudly presented free thanks to The Balnaves Foundation.

'Neo' means new, youthful, fresh, lately and now. It suggests the spirit of the contemporary, so it is an ideal name for the Gallery's new free program of events led by artists and art lovers exclusively for young teens 18 and under.


Friday 2 June, 6:00-8:30pm


Registrations essential, available online 1 May

Get ready for a wild night as Neo welcome the Art Gallery's inaugural Ramsay Art Prize! Come and check out the exhibition, meet the curator and create your own prize-winning works of art with local artists. Join film-guru Liam Somerville of Capital Waste pictures and become a green-screen superstar, try traditional and avant-garde drawing techniques with Thomas Readett and make wearable works of art from curb side refuse with Alice Potter. There's performance, prizes, live music and more to be announced.
