Forge - Akin's Collaborative Workshop Series

Call for Expressions of Interest
AKIN Collective: FORGE Collaborative Workshop Series seeking Artist Facilitators

FORGE connections. FUEL your practice. RESHAPE your creative process.

Kicking off this Fall, FORGE will be AKIN Collective's newest creative incubator for practicing artists and designers. Participants will learn and share skills, discuss, debate, bust creative ruts, stretch their abilities, brainstorm with peers and be challenged to step outside of their practice. Workshops can be thematic in nature, and should provide an opportunity for advanced skill building with a strong emphasis on collaboration and knowledge transfer among members of AKIN's community. Workshops should focus on exploring unconventional processes or modes of expression. Take us places we've never been before!

Expression of Interest should include:

A brief bio of yourself and your practice,
+ Documentation of your work and/or any relevant links to your work online,
+ A short outline of the workshop(s) you'd like to conduct,
+ Ideal number of participants, required materials or space, the best time of year to hold the workshop, and any other technical or safety considerations that may apply.

Anyone may submit an expression of interest. Teaching or facilitating experience is considered an asset. If you are interested in organizing and leading a workshop, we want to hear from you! We also want to hear from you if you have ideas about specific topics for workshops you are interested in taking.
An artist's fee participating facilitators will be offered.
