MPavilion guide: #4

Read on for our final guide to the MPavilion programme for this year.

MTalks: A city for millenials by millenials
AILA Fresh and the Planning Institute of Australia’s Young Planners host a collaborative discussion exploring the millennial city of the future. How will the next generation reimagine the city, in the wake of angst driven by generational inequity? Featuring three influential millennial city-makers, audience participation is essential!

MMeets: Matthew Bird: an immersive encounter with the afterlife – performance
Gather at MPavilion for a twilight performance designed around artist and experimental architect Matthew Bird’s interactive ‘An immersive encounter with the afterlife’ installation. The third in a series of specially commissioned performances around Bird’s MPavilion work, the event aims to create a responsive, transcendent and nondenominational performance dialogue with the hereafter.

MKids MProjects MMeets Tin&Ed: Inflatable Futures
Cross-hemispherical creatives Tin&Ed present Inflatable Futures, a work of inflatable sculpture that encourages kids to play and engage with ideas of technology, space and the future. All ages welcome.

MKids MMeets: Westside Circus Activity sessions – afternoons
Westside Circus is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to creating inclusive, participatory experiences for young people. Join an afternoon workshop with the Westside crew and learn how to juggle, tumble and balance as a way to train the body and relax the mind. Event registrations are encouraged.

As always, we suggest you steer yourself over to the MPavilion website for the full programme of mind-expanding events, continuing through to 2018.
