Since 2019, MPavilion and RACV have shared a partnership of strong common values around community, advocacy, creativity and collaboration.

In 2020, that partnership will respond to the challenges of a year beset by bushfire and a global pandemic with AMPLIFY—an uplifting and energetic cultural program that moves beyond the city to communities in regional Victoria.

Bounding into some of the biggest environmental, social and infrastructural questions facing people in Australia today, AMPLIFY will be a lightning rod of discussions and insights, inviting people of all ages—in physical and digital attendance—to take an active part in the discovery and development of new ideas, new attitudes, and new, life-changing ways forward.

There are exciting events in the works, beginning with a conversation with artist Kirstin Berg about her incredible exhibition Still in Love with the World at Benalla Art Gallery.

So whether you live in regional Victoria, or you’re visiting online from elsewhere, stay tuned for AMPLIFY program updates…

MTALKS KIRSTIN BERG IN CONVERSATION WITH MARDI NOWAK

 

To launch her Benalla Art Gallery exhibition Still in Love with the World, artist Kirstin Berg spoke with curator Mardi Nowak about the origins of the work, the processes that brought it into being, and her affinity with the community of Benalla.

Exploring ideas around resilience, transformation, and the making of strength from darkness, Still in Love with the World looks at the importance of using challenging times like these to slow down, find beauty in the ‘mundane’, and turn tough circumstances into new beginnings.

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.
