On the last Wednesday of every month Akin host’s a relaxed and fun ‘Show and Tell for Artists’ at one of the Akin Collective studios. This is a time for Akin members and other Toronto artists to show completed works or works in progress and get friendly feedback and answers from their peers in a casual studio setting.
Feel free to bring art to share, bring a friend or two, bring snacks or drinks or just bring yourself! Come for the conversation or just to meet other artists and makers. This is FREE public event - everyone is welcome!
This month we are meeting at Akin Dupont located at 1485 Dupont St in studio 204 (second floor).
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch! See you there!
Akin Dupont is not currently reliably wheelchair accessible. Akin regrets this barrier to access.
The main entrance (located on Campbell Ave) has step free access into the lobby area. Once inside, the main entrance staircase leading to the second floor has 23 steps with a handrail. At the second floor landing, the hallway to the left leads you to our four studio doors.
There is a secondary building entrance also located on Campbell Avenue, a little south of the main entrance. There is one step up to the door and once inside, there is a staircase with 22 steps and a handrail that takes you to the second floor.
There is a freight elevator that opens onto the main, second and third floors for loading and unloading furniture and equipment. However the elevator is not always available, and has two heavy doors which must be manually lifted to be operable.
The second floor bathrooms are located in the hallway and are wheelchair accessible. however the building has installed key locks on the bathroom doors making entry into the washrooms more difficult as the doors are heavy. Keys for the washrooms are located in each of our four studio rooms. The washrooms are gendered MEN and LADIES. Akin does not have access to gender-neutral washroom in this building.
