MMeets, say hello to our 2018/19 season. We’re hosting a third series of free, unexpected gatherings that invite Melburnians to use MPavilion as a clubhouse, a meeting place and a starting point—and explore the value and impact of design and creativity. Meet up with us, your friends and a troupe of makers and creators.

In 2018/19, we’re talking about what it means to make our cities inclusive and equitable—from gender to accessibility, cultural diversity and living quality. Join us for our series of tag-team discussions, engaging leading thinkers and doers—and you!


Talks, workshops, meets, readings and more on how the spaces we inhabit in our cities and neighbourhoods define our lives.


Art. Sound art, visual art, installation, public space interventions and everything in-between.


This topic covers all things commerce: from entrepreneurs to ethics to new technology, and the spaces in-between.


From live performances to workshops and talks about dance, these events are all about the art of human movement.


Good design = a good life. Come along to these talks, workshops, meetings and encounters all about design.

Design & Science explores the design in science and the science in design. This topic is made possible by the Hugh D. T. Williamson Foundation and includes talks, workshops, interactive installations and screenings!


Because dogs.


Events with an educational angle.


Honest to goodness, ethics are an essential pillar of our modern civil society. These events explore the principled side of life.


From talks to readings, to performances and workshops, and more—these events have a historical bent.

Indigenous culture

Events exploring Indigenous culture—past, present and future.


Bands and musical groups, DJs, talks and workshops that include performance; theatrical events, readings and spoken word, and so much more.


Talks, workshops and events that explore issues facing our society.
