Until 2020, MPavilion was a temporary, physical pavilion located in the heart of Melbourne—a place dedicated to community gathering around design dialogues. But in 2020, MPavilion has evolved beyond being anchored to one fixed site, while amplifying its commitment to bringing people together around design.

In a year of immense challenge and change, MPavilion has taken the opportunity to free its program from a single physical space, and open it up across many spaces, both physical and online. In taking this bigger, more dynamic approach to delivering another season of uplifting cultural experiences to the people of Melbourne, MPavilion has been able to commission more artists, designers and creatives than ever before.

We acknowledge the Wurundjeri and the Boon Wurrung clans of the Kulin Nation as the traditional custodians of the land on which we connect, create and work. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and emerging. We welcome all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and acknowledge the wealth of their creative practice, stretching back to the beginning of the dreaming.
