Akin Collective is a Toronto-based arts organization that provides affordable studio space as well as arts-based programming through it's sister non-profit organization, Akin Projects. Our studios provide a working environment that maintains a friendly and inspiring atmosphere where people can work on creative endeavors and entrepreneurial undertakings of all kinds. We build community through monthly art critiques, workshops, open studio events, gallery tours, exhibitions, as well as various other art projects.

Check our calendar, blog, or Facebook group for events and other programming and projects.

The Akin Vitrine Gallery, located at our Dupont studios, was launched on October 1, 2016 and features the diverse talent of our members with a new installation each month.
