Office Hours. Where we co-work it out.

We’re the kind of people who enjoyed “office hours” in school and we’ve developed a version of that for Ottawa’s creatives, social entrepreneurs and people making change.

 

Each week kicks off at 1 pm with a 30-45 minute knowledge-exchange with lightly curated co-working groups where we will skill-share, content-hack and co-teach. Participants can book the podcasting studio, ask for lessons from a MediaStyle strategist, or host a small meeting in the “idea room.”

MediaStyle introduces you to new people, new ideas and a new way of thinking about work. The Commons program is becoming an important part of our social enterprise purpose and is offered for free for any participant or organization.

The application period for the inaugural cohort of the program has closed. Stay tuned for information about what the cohort is working on.
