Our friends at MPavilion are doing things a little differently this year – instead of building a new MPavilion, they will focus on reconnecting communities with the six existing MPavilions gifted to the city by the Naomi Milgrom Foundation.

At a time where artists and designers have been disadvantaged, displaced and disconnected due to the pandemic, MPavilion is adapting its operation to be more accessible to more Melburnians in the most efficient and sustainable way possible. The new program will aid and boost local creativity through a series of commissions, including music commissions, art installations, and graphic and fashion design commissions. Strengthening our creative communities is at the heart of the Naomi Milgrom Foundation, so it has been natural for us to respond to the pandemic by creating more opportunities for designers and artists this year. By being resourceful and re-using our permanent MPavilion locations, MPavilion will play a meaningful new role in helping to revitalise our neighbourhoods with the work of artists and designers, says Naomi Milgrom.”
