The 2018 Call for Applications for the Akin Studio Program at MOCA (May 2018 - April 2019) is now closed. We will announce the successful applicants shortly and the Program will launch in May, 2018. The Call for the 2019 - 2020 Program will be announced in the new year. 

Akin and The Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto Canada (MOCA) are excited to announce the Akin Studio Program. This program will provide affordable studio space to 20+ visual artists and cultural practitioners in the museum's new home which is set to open on May 26, 2018 at 158 Sterling Road in the Junction Triangle.

Selected artists will be invited to move their studio into the museum for a term of one year and will share their practices with the museum’s visitors through programs such as open studio events. Regular Akin studio rental fees will apply. The studios will vary in size from approximately 50 to 250 square feet and will be designed by Akin to create a bright and welcoming environment for artists to develop their work. Similar to Akin’s seven other locations, the space will foster a community atmosphere and the exchange of ideas.

This Program is open to student, emerging and professional art practitioners, curators and writers living in Toronto.
