During the 2020 season, MPavilion responded to the needs of the time by hosting events at multiple locations.
Our 2020 season is now closed, but you can still visit these locations while we gear up for the launch of our next season, in November 2021.
Please note that some locations have set opening hours, so be sure to check them before your visit.



Our Podcast Library is regularly updated with archive recordings from talks and readings from the first MPavilion season in 2014 to the present day.

It’s a place brimful of recordings so that you can visit—or revisit—a selection of our cultural events from over the years and listen in-season to the latest from MPavilion 2020.

  • 🏙️ 🗞️ The @cityofmelbourne has announced they are prioritising design with the appointment of more than 40 experts to two new design advisory bodies—and we love to see it!  We’re delighted to see so many collaborators and friends of MPavilion appointed, including Sarah Lynn Rees, Jill Garner, Rory Hyde, Tania Davidge, Martyn Hook, and Georgia Birks, to name a few...  The panels will provide formal design advice on development applications, advocacy and culture, focusing on opportunities to reassert Melbourne’s global reputation as a leading design city.  At MPavilion, we seek to champion the role of design and demonstrate Melbourne’s status as an international design leader, so we congratulate @cityofmelbourne and all those appointed on this important initiative.

  • 👏 BEST IN CLASS 👏  We are thrilled to announce that MPavilion 2020 Stool Dolly by @BoardGrove has received a Good Design Award Best in Class Accolade in the Product Design category from @gooddesignaus.  The 'socially distant' design is joyful as well as practical, responding to a time when physical distancing was critical, safety was key and morale was low.  Reminiscent of children's paper dolls connected by their outstretched arms, each Stool Dolly chair could be positioned at ‘arm’s length’ (1.5 metres) or interlocked—allowing audiences to be safely apart, together.  ✨ Congratulations, @BoardGrove! ✨  Read more about the Stool Dolly commission via the link in our bio.  📷
