Akin St Clair

Akin St Clair 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 1747 St. Clair Avenue West, near St Clair Avenue West and Keele St, Akin St. Clair has 30 dedicated studio spaces ranging in size from 20 square feet to 120 square feet as well as two completely private studios

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!

 

Rachel Butler is the Akin St Clair studio manager.  You can contact them by emailing rachel@akincollective.com. Please note that all Akin Staff are also practicing artists, as a result we may not be able to get back to your inquiry immediately.
