Between Bridges 2020 Solidarity Posters
supporting the Candid Arts Centre Appeal

Over forty international artists including Gillian Wearing, Luc Tuymans and Tomma  Abts have come together to create one poster each that can be offered for £50 by arts organisations that are struggling as a result of the coronavirus crisis.
Posters are available here

We have set up a crowdfunder with the goal of securing the future of the centre for the promotion of the arts, as well as helping the artists in the individual studios. Candid Arts Centre is too big to qualify for any of the government grants, so we are asking you to donate as much or as little as you can afford to help see the centre through this crisis

More information here:

Candid Arts Trust is a self-funded, registered charity based at the Candid Arts Centre in Islington, London. The centre is located in two Victorian warehouses totalling 23,000 square feet and offers 6,500 square feet of loft style exhibition space, 28 artists studios, film screening rooms, rehearsal spaces, as well as a café with outside courtyard.

Candid Arts Trust’s  primary objective is to promote the arts and arts education with special emphasis placed on helping newly graduated artists and designers in their first years out of college. 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.
