That the Parliament congratulates the contributing artists and organising committee of North East Open Studios (NEOS) 2021 on this year’s showcase; understands that NEOS has, since 2003, worked to highlight the work of creators and artists in a number of disciplines from across the north east by opening up studios across the region to visitors; notes that, this year, over 250 artists are involved, with over 50 of them located in Aberdeenshire East; recognises that NEOS is organised by a volunteer committee every year; commends the efforts of the organisers, applauds the talent of the participants across the north east, and wishes both the committee and the artists well for the future.
