Welcome to Candid Arts
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, 20 artists studios, film screening rooms, rehearsal spaces, a banquet room that can be hired for private functions 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 Islington Art and Design Fair, 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.
Candid Arts Trust is now taking applications for desk and studio space which will be available in February 2017. More information here.
