Use our social innovation space

The Commons is available for external bookings. The space includes a full coffee bar, a lounge area, collaborative breakout tables and seating for 30 people. It can be used for everything from World Café style facilitation to formal lecture format. We’ll help you set it up.

In addition to an events and learning space, The Commons at MediaStyle is home to a fully equipped podcasting studio, and the space was designed for capturing great photography and video. We can even live-stream your activity or connect you to folks not in Ottawa, via video conference.  

For all inquiries, please email commons@mediastyle.ca or feel free to drop by to chat.

Please note that The Commons is located on the 3rd floor of a heritage building and unfortunately does not currently have elevator access.
