Akin St Clair Mural Project: Community Consultation

  • Akin St Clair 1747 Saint Clair Avenue West Toronto, ON, M6N 1J4 Canada (map)

As new members to the St. Clair West community, it is clear that the neighbourhood is in the process of changing rapidly. We at Akin believe it’s important that new changes are guided by the existing community. In partnership with StreetARToronto - a program of the City of Toronto, Transportation Services Division, Akin aims to have the surrounding neighbourhood involved in the creation of a community mural on the side of our artist studio this summer. We would love for you all to be part of the process!

This summer, Akin will be hosting a community open-house, and everyone is welcome! At our open-house we will have a series of activities for children and visitors are welcome to have a look around our studio.

We will also be hosting a series of community workshops on how to use a spray paint can and make murals.

Important dates: 
July 8: 1-4pm Community Consultation at 1747 St Clair Ave West
July 10: 6-9pm Graffiti Workshop at 1747 St Clair Ave West

How to get involved: 
If you have ideas about the mural please get in touch by emailing rachel@akincollective.com. We will also need everyone to get involved in order to make this project a success.

Do you have a business in the St Clair Ave W and Keele St area? 
We would love to get as many community members and businesses involved. We are excited to invite local businesses to help us cater the event, there is so much lovely food in the St. Clair Gardens area e! Perhaps you would be interested in joining us a community sponsor, and we’d be exciting to hear your ideas.
