Akin Richmond

Located at 568 Richmond St W, Akin Richmond is our newest studio location. There are four dedicated studio spaces ranging from 25sf to 60sf. We are located on the main floor of the building next to our new gallery and programming space REMOTE. Visit www.remote.gallery for more information.

A huge thank you to the Toronto Arts Council for their collaboration on this space, without whom this would not have been possible. Special thanks also to our friends and collaborators Neighbourhood Arts Network and Toronto Employment and Social Services’ Art Connections program.

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. 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.

Akin Richmond is managed by Erin Candela. Erin Candela is an interdisciplinary artist who has been a member of Akin since 2016. You can view her work at erincandela.ca, and contact her at erin@akincollective.com
