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.

  • Exciting news! Glenn Murcutt AO has been named the 2021 Praemium Imperiale laureate for architecture, making him the first Australian to be awarded the honour.  The Japan Art Association described Glenn as "an architect ahead of his time—an architect who has spent his career creating modest, environmentally responsible buildings rooted in the climate and tradition of his native Australia."  And his MPavilion 2019 was no exception, designing a characteristically thoughtful, climate-responsive MPavilion which rested on the landscape.  Glenn was also the first Australian to win the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2002 and is often referenced as Australia's most famous architect.  Congratulations, Glenn! 👏  📷

To mark #InternationalLiteracyDay, hear Kirsten Hausia (Culture Crate), Denise Chapman (Monash University), Emele Ugavule (Talanoa), and Torika Bolatagici (Community Reading Room) in conversation as they delve into the importance of access to diverse children’s literature, matters of representation and the power of books to challenge dominant discourse.  We teamed up with @communityreadingroom to bring you this MPavilion podcast ‘Margin to Mainstream: New Narratives in Children’s Literature'.  🔗 Link in bio to listen
