COVID-19 Safe Plan

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.

  • Spotted: @boardgrove's 'Stool Dolly' outside of @wood_marsh Architecture's iconic building for @acca_melbourne and @chunkymove 👀 
​
Wood Marsh's famous design has become one of Melbourne’s best loved architectural icons as a 'sculpture in which to show art'. Inspired by the European model of the 'kunsthalle' or ‘exhibition hall’, the building is also home to @ron_robertson_swann's infamous sculptural piece the 'Vault' ➡️  Did you know you can win a 'Stool Dolly'? Come to an MPavilion event in real life this December, take a picture and share with us on Instagram for your chance to win 🎉

  • 📱 Swiping right this Friday night? 📱    ​Clicks, swipes, and taps are increasingly becoming our way of finding intimacy.  ​Did you know that on 29 March 2020, Tinder users swiped 3 billion times globally? It’s the most the dating app has ever recorded in a single day and the exact moment when cities across the world were imposing open-ended lockdowns. As strict social distancing measures in response to Covid-19 were introduced, people turned en masse to virtual forms of interaction and connection: with family, friends, or strangers 🤳
​
From romance to work, dining to domesticity, the pandemic has supercharged existing trends towards the hybridisation of our online and offline worlds.  ​But what does it mean when the boundaries between the physical and digital spaces we inhabit in a city begin to blur?
​
Next Monday, join celebrated founder of the New York/Madrid-based Office for Political Innovation @andres_jaque in conversation with local urban strategist @alexiskalagas as they unpack the question.

  • 💛 Friday fashions, anyone? 🧡 
​
​Take a trip down the runway with us.
​
​Since 2015, Melbourne's fashion students have responded to the physical architecture and sites of each MPavilion season. But naturally, in 2020 that brief has changed.  In a year as big as this one, designers have been creating in the face of daunting circumstances. Showcasing the ingenuity and skill of RMIT Master of Fashion (Design) students, ‘First Look’ is a celebration of radical new approaches to fashion practice in the time of pandemic, environmental crisis, and rapidly changing industries.  Creatively diverse, critical and thoughtful, the work spotlighted here is an unmissable introduction to Melbourne’s next wave of groundbreaking fashion designers.

  • COME TOGETHER 🙆‍♂️🙆‍♀️  MPavilion events are happening in-person, in real physical locations in December!  That’s why we’ve given December the theme: ‘IRL: Exploring Social Spaces’—a theme zooming in on questions around presence. Between hugging and video conferencing, congregating and live-streaming, physically visiting and virtually viewing, what does ‘presence’ mean? And how does an online existence affect our perception of reality?  ​Join us in December to find out. 
​
Melbourne, welcome back to IRL. #MPavilion2020 #WhatsonMelbourne #MelbourneDesign
