Since starting in June 2005, the CandyCollective now consists of a core group of people all over the world who are intent on creating noise in their local area. CANDY magazine was launched to showcase Irish creativity alongside international equivalents to a worldwide audience. Since then many downloadable pdf format issues have been released and focus has changed somewhat to showcasing and promoting creatives and their work wherever they may be.
The CandyCollective grew organically, drawing on the contacts, expertise and skills of new members. Events include: SweetTalk, 50×50, Shock’d, Electric Picnic and event promotion and management.
SweetTalk is the name of CandyCollective’s self-initiated series of creative-to-creative live events. It brings together local creative talent with international luminaries in a relaxed, social environment.
