Since 2017, Nelson Meers Foundation has been supporting the MPavilion's far-reaching and diverse annual cultural programs. Encompassing a new civic space, a cultural laboratory and an event hub in Melbourne, MPavilion brings creative collaborators together to present a free, four-month-long program of talks, workshops, performances and installations from October/November to February/March each year.
Why did we fund this project? We are thrilled to be able to support an organisation that privileges innovation, collaboration, and participation.
In 2019, MPavilion welcomes influential Australian architect Glenn Murcutt AO as their esteemed designer. Often referenced as Australia's most famous architect, Glenn is the only Australian recipient of the Pritzker Architecture Prize (2002) and is internationally recognised for environmentally sensitive and responsible designs with a distinctive Australian character. MPavilion will open free to the public on Thursday 14 November 2019 until Sunday 22 March 2020. Queen Victoria Gardens, opposite Arts Centre Melbourne on St Kilda Road, Melbourne.
