Studio
Studio space for artists working with emerging and digital practices.

Studio Membership

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic InterAccess is currently not accepting new studio members. We are currently focusing on providing studio access for existing members on a reduced basis in order to ensure continuity of access.

Open Studio

Our weekly Open Studio program is temporarily on hold as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Studio Safety Guidelines

All members using the studio must adhere to the following safety measures:

• Practice proper hand hygiene, including washing your hands or using hand sanitizer when you enter the space.

• Clean and disinfect any equipment and tools before and after use. You are also encouraged to clean high-touch areas with a wipe or use isopropyl alcohol to spray down surfaces. High-touch surfaces include the toilet flush lever, the washroom faucet, the top of the soap dispenser, washroom door handles, the front door handles, and the alarm touchscreen.

• There will be PPE equipment in the front foyer, including gloves, wipes, and hand sanitizer. The wipes we have purchased are medical grade and can kill the virus in 1 minute (the surface must be visibly wet for 1 min to kill the virus). If you use gloves be sure to follow proper glove removal protocol.

• There is some risk of transmission when sharing a washroom, although experts advise this risk is very low. Please put the toilet seat down when you flush the toilet.

• The City of Toronto has passed a Mandatory Mask or Face Covering Bylaw. All persons must wear a mask or face covering which covers the nose, mouth and chin while working in the studio. Be sure to follow the do's and don'ts of mask wearing. It is permissible to remove your mask momentarily to eat or drink. Proper use of masks requires that you wash or disinfect your hands before putting on and after taking off a mask.

• Members must maintain a six-foot distance from staff at all times.

• If you have any symptoms of COVID-19 such as fever, cough or difficulty breathing, please do not visit InterAccess. If you have symptoms you should use Ontario’s self assessment tool or contact your health care provider or Telehealth Ontario (1-866-797-0000).

• You are encouraged to download Canada’s COVID Alert app so you can be notified directly if you have been in close contact with someone who was contagious with COVID-19.

Studio Membership

Our 800 square foot shared production studio at 950 Dupont St. is a space for artists working with emerging and digital practices. The InterAccess Studio provides 24/7 access to electronics work space, tools for machining and fabrication, and a variety of old electronics for use or salvage. The studio is a great place to learn new technical skills and produce work in a community that values critical approaches to working at the intersection of art and technology.

The Studio is the cornerstone of our services, and is where learning, art, and community thrive. We offer different types of studio access passes to suit your needs.
