Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.

  • That's a wrap!  MPavilion 2020/21 is now finished—and what a season it has been. From beaming to you in your homes online during lockdown, to reanimating the pavilions of past seasons when we could come back together, to turning the seventh floor of Parkade car park into a rollerdisco, a cinema, a performance space and so much more, this season's program has proven that beyond being any one physical space, MPavilion is a living, breathing cultural laboratory. One that lives because all of you bring it to life with your presence and your ideas.  Of course, absolutely none of it would have been possible without the imagination and support of every collaborator who helped to make each event happen. So to all who took part, Team MPavilion thank you! Being able to make this season a reality in the midst of a pandemic is a testament to your vision and determination. 
But just because we're saying goodbye for now—until our next season begins in November 2021—doesn't mean you have to go MPavilion-less before then! Our online MPavilion Library is a treasure trove of recorded events that will brighten your mind, feed your spirit and stoke your idea-fires until we return.  So for now, take care of yourselves and each other, and dive into a podcast (or two hundred) on the MPavilion Library 📚 📺 🎧  From all of us at MPavilion ✨  Link in bio for MPavilion Library 🔗

  • A vacant city can be daunting, but it also presents opportunities for growth, renewal and change.  MPavilion, Dexus and The City of Melbourne invite you to attend ‘Adapting the city: what next?’—a meeting of representatives from diverse city constituencies who will explore the critical challenges and opportunities that face Melbourne in 2021 and beyond.  What do we need from our city and its urban infrastructure to embrace the new normal of post-pandemic? How can our built environment be best utilised to confront the challenges and bring back its citizenry? ​Hosted by Andrew Mackenzie, Director of URO publications and CityLab, with panelists Prof. Rob Adams AM, Tania Davidge of OoPLA, Martine Letts, CEO of the Committee for Melbourne and Marcus Spiller of SGS economics and planning, this conversation considers the potential of new spaces and the changes we can make to our built environments to reignite the vibrancy of our city and find new ways to consider our relationships with people, space, health and well-being.  Register online to attend ‘Adapting the City, what next?’ in person, at MPavilion Parkade.  Thu 1 Apr, 6.15—7.15pm  Link in bio 🔗  ​@citylabau @bookshop_by_uro @taniadavidge
