Art, ideas, and epic events for teens.

Neo is where young people can kick back and hang out with friends while joining in artist-led workshops, listening to local live music and taking part in performances and activities.

Neo is free and held six times a year.

Stay tuned, the Monstrous Neo Teen Takeover is shape-shifting into a digital space, featuring exclusive online experiences and features, led by Teen Takeover artists, organisations and Neo Ambassadors. We can't wait to share it with you!

Monstrous Neo Digital Teen Takeover will launch online Saturday 25 April, 6pm. Make sure to save the date and return here to experience this teen-led digital program!
