MMeets

MMeets, say hello to our 2017/18 season. We’re hosting a third series of free, unexpected gatherings that invite Melburnians to use MPavilion as a clubhouse, a meeting place and a starting point—and explore the value and impact of design and creativity. Meet up with us, your friends and a troupe of makers and creators.

MMusic

MMusic is back for 2017/18 with a series of free shows, sets, workshops and admittedly hard-to-define aural experiences presented in collaboration with Melbourne artists, DJs and experimenters.

MKids is back for our 2017/18 season! We have marked out all the fun and relaxed, kid-friendly events in our program, including those that are specifically suited to kids and kids at heart.

MProjects

MProjects exist at MPavilion for an enduring time span. Always captivating, MProjects events are unique, site-specific installations and activations at our place in the Queen Victoria Gardens.

MRelay

architecture

Talks, workshops, meets, readings and more on how the spaces we inhabit in our cities and neighbourhoods define our lives.

art

Art. Sound art, visual art, installation, public space interventions and everything in-between.

business

This topic covers all things commerce: from entrepreneurs to ethics to new technology, and the spaces in-between.

CPD (for architects)

Registered architects practicing in Australia have to maintain a level of professional development and this is measured by AIA in the form of a tally of formal and informal continuing professional development (CPD) points. Events at MPavilion related to architecture attract one CPD point for attending the event or listening to the audio recording.

dance

From live performances to workshops and talks about dance, these events are all about the art of human movement.

design

Good design = a good life. Come along to these talks, workshops, meetings and encounters all about design.

design & science

Design & Science explores the design in science and the science in design. This topic is made possible by the Hugh D. T. Williamson Foundation and includes talks, workshops, interactive installations and screenings!

From talks to readings, to performances and workshops, and more—these events have a historical bent.

wellbeing

Morning yoga. A cup of tea. Meditation. Modern life has come to be defined by a focus on wellness and health—this topic has wellbeing covered!

writing

All matters wordy and worldly with workshops, writing awards, readings, authors in-conversation, and writers (surprisingly!) not necessarily talking about writing.
