EXPRESSIon of Interest

Expressions of Interest for M_Curators 2021 have now closed.

For the third year in a row, MPavilion is looking for 15 to 25 year-olds interested in programming, curating, art, design and architecture to be part of a new cohort of M_Curators: a passionate group of young people shaping our 2021 season.

Read about the past M_Curators of MPavilion seasons and their projects here.



MPavilion is Australia’s leading architectural commission and design event conceived and created by the Naomi Milgrom Foundation. Every year, one new temporary pavilion designed by a leading international architect is erected in Melbourne’s historic Queen Victoria Gardens. Over summer, MPavilion becomes a design and cultural laboratory, home to a series of talks, workshops, performances and installations. 

The MPavilion


The MPavilion season runs from Friday 12 November 2021 to Sunday 27 March 2022. Each month’s events will be curated by a different theme.




This program is open to people 25 and under based in metro Melbourne and regional Victoria.

We strongly encourage applications from people that are First Nations, CALD, BIPOC, living with a disability, LGBTQIA+, and from other minority communities.

it for you

  • Bring your vision to life on-site at MPavilion 2021, as part of a supportive team of creatives

  • M_Curators will meet every fortnight on Thursdays from 5-7pm, from mid September to mid March. Meetings will be held both online and in the city (with the exact location to be confirmed)
  • The sessions will involve learning more about MPavilion and the architects, workshopping the events corresponding to the planned themes, exploring ideas for the program and then planning a variety of events.
