Art, ideas, and epic events for teens

Neo is a parent-free zone just for teens. Art, live music, performances, food and more.

Held six times a year, Neo is a free after-hours event for young people aged 13-17 years. Programmed by the Neo Ambassadors, Neo is a parent-free zone where young people can kick back and hang out with friends, jump into creative labs, tune into live music and explore the latest exhibitions at AGSA. Since its beginning in 2016, Neo has welcomed over 8000 teens to AGSA.

Across its annual program, Neo hosts two large-scale 'Teen Takeover' events which take place across the whole gallery, in addition to focused events which activate the latest temporary exhibition and collection spaces.

Neo is a strictly drug-free and alcohol-free event. Entry to the event is at the discretion of Neo staff. Each event is supervised and supported by our super friendly Neo team, including AGSA Staff, Security and feature artists.
