Akin Show and Tell 2018 Schedule

Every month Akin host’s a relaxed and fun ‘Show and Tell for Artists’ at one of the Akin Collective studios or at one of our partner organizations. 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. Our first Show and Tell of the year is a special ceramics edition happening at the Gardiner Museum on January 20 from 2-4pm.
