Help one of the largest multi disciplinary arts spaces in London survive.

by Candid Arts Trust in London, England, United Kingdom

We're still collecting donations

On the 1st June 2020 we'd raised £8,939 with 194 supporters in 55 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

Candid Arts Centre is a self-funded charity arts organisation that was established over 30 years ago.

Candid Arts Centre is too big to qualify for any of the government grants, so we have started this crowd funder appeal for donations including some great value rewards which can be redeemed once the crisis is over.

Candid Arts Centre

The centre holds daily life drawing classes and is home to 25 artists' studios, a gallery space of 220sqm, a music/performance/exhibition venue of 250sqm, a cinema/performance space of 160sqm, a drawing & painting studio of 220sqm, as well as a cafe/restaurant & a charity shop.

The largest space of its kind in Islington, London and has huge running costs. In normal times we can welcome several thousand people a week though our doors to enjoy our varied activities. But since the building work opposite the Candid's revenue has been devastated. The 50+ creative practitioners who occupy the 25 studios are having similar problems in sustaining their independent businesses. 

We have set up this appeal with the goal of securing the future of the centre for the promotion of the arts and arts education, as well as helping the artists in the individual studios.

Thank you from all at Candid Arts.
