Call for Applications: Akin X Collision Gallery Residency
Hosted by Akin Collective
Deadline to apply: January 10, 2020 at 5:00 PM
The Akin X Collision Gallery Residency is a public opportunity open to art practitioners, curators, artist groups and writers (hereafter referred to as artists) to lease shared studio space in the heart of Toronto’s financial district, an area so often void of artists and cultural activity. As part of a six-month studio space rental, in what would otherwise be vacant space, selected artists will be immersed within a community of peers and the broader public, with potential opportunities for engagement with a huge number of daily passers by. Studio members will be encouraged to develop and expand their individual practices while engaging with the public in new ways. We encourage applications from artists and creatives who recognize the potential of making work in this unique space. Thank you for your interest in this opportunity.
Studio Rental Program Start Date: March 1, 2020
Studio Rental Program End Date: August 31, 2020
Within the building, there is elevator access to all floors as well as AODA (Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act) compliant and gender neutral washrooms and an accessible kitchenette. Please let us know should you require any additional information.
