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. 

Selected artists will be moving 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.

Floor 4 of MOCA will integrate these studios, with residencies and a workshop space for educational programs. The studios will vary in size from approximately 50 to 250 square feet and will be designed by Akin to create a light and welcoming environment for artists to develop their work. Regular Akin studio rental fees will apply. Similar to Akin’s 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.
