Young artists this one's for you! This August, Neo is hosting its first ever exhibition as part of the South Australian Living Artists (SALA) Festival!

Be part of a statewide festival of visual art that supports, values and celebrates South Australian artists at any level. Each year, over 600 venues take part alongside 9000 participating artists!

The Theme

We're looking for artworks of any medium, inspired by the theme of HOME.

The Neo Ambassadors shared some leading thoughts reflecting on the theme to help you get started.

  • What does home mean to you? Is it a place? A community? A group of people?
  • The SALA Festival is all about showcasing the work of South Australian artists.
  • Is there something local you would like to celebrate, or a unique perspective you want to share in your work?
  • What is 'local' to you? Is it your next door neighbour? The next suburb across? What about a group chat with interstate friends?
  • Many of us have recently experienced a period of self-isolation due to COVID-19. How has this experience changed your relationship to your home or community of friends and family?

Your artwork is not limited to these ideas, we welcome any interpretation of the theme!
