Candid showcases their work in specially organised exhibitions throughout the year and acts as an intermediary between artists and designers wishing to sell their work and clients looking to purchase new works.

Candid Arts Trust events include The Angel Christmas Fair as well as various group shows and film screenings throughout the year. It also hosts a number of College Degree Shows and solo and group exhibitions.

Over the past few years Candid Arts Trust has developed an educational programme that includes a variety of painting and drawing classes and workshops.
