“Viewed optimistically and approached boldly, this challenging moment in history has opened up new programming possibilities—opportunities that will open up different conversations, ideas and connections about our city, our public spaces and the world.” – Naomi Milgrom AC

In a series of dynamic and uplifting personal reflections and inter-video discussions, MPavilion founder Naomi Milgrom AC and a group of eminent guests officially launch MPavilion 2020. As well as sharing their own stories about what MPavilion means to them, each speaker will talk about MPavilion’s wider role as a cultural phenomenon, and explore the way its upcoming program is supporting creatives and reviving art and design in a time of pandemic.
