Akin Ossington

Akin Lansdowne sits on the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee, the Métis, and most recently, the territory of the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.

Located at 888 Dupont St, Akin Ossington will be Akin's first studios dedicated to providing workspace for light industrial art making. Akin Ossington has 11 studios ranging from 40 square feet to 250 square feet. We are located on the second floor of the building. The entrance is on the east side of the building. 


Please note that the studios are only available for tours that are scheduled in advance. We'd love to show you around, but want to make sure we're there!

 

Jen Pilles is the Akin Ossington studio manager. She is a freelance illustrator and has had a studio with Akin since 2013. You can view her work at www.jenpilles.com and contact her by emailing jen@akincollective.com.

Once you are in the building the hallways and studios are level throughout. There are two step-free gender-neutral bathrooms. There are no grab bars in the washroom and the toilets are not raised.
