The Epoch LAB is the Epoch Institute’s beautiful workshop space.  
It’s the gathering place where great creative and innovative work can happen.  
A place for workshops, talks, ideas generation, strategic planning, and specialized training.
It is ideal for reflection, yoga, meditation, or other wellness activities.

Whether you need to present information in a theatre style, use circular tables for small group work activities, sit in the round, or network at a stand-up function, the space offers many solutions for your needs. The 40-person workshop spaces offer glass whiteboards, AV Technology, round tables, chairs, yoga mats, and meditation seats. 

This light-filled space overlooks the green tree-lined streets of the South Melbourne Markets, which are open on Wednesday and Friday. Participants can enjoy the Markets, Food Courts, Cafes, or local Brew Houses for lunch, tea breaks, debriefing, or celebrating after their event.

Groups of all kinds are encouraged to use the LAB, particularly those who are consciously taking steps to build connection, understanding, and compassion through their activities. It is well known that workers who meet for think tanks, strategy or training are more engaged with planning and training opportunities that happen away from their regular work site. We welcome you and your team here to be inspired, creative, and solution-focused for your good work.

To enquire about hiring the Epoch Lab for events, workshops, launches, strategic planning, training, wellness, yoga, or meditation sessions, please get in touch.
