It's the news architecture and design fans — and just all-round creative folks in general — have been waiting for. MPavilion has revealed the highlights of its 2016/17 lineup and hooo boy, it's a long list.
The program runs from October 5 to February 18, and includes over 400 free public events. Basically, prepare for your entertainment budget to drop significantly, C/O MPavilion. They're a part of the Melbourne Festival and Confluence: Festival of India, which also includes White Night and Melbourne Music Week.
This year's highlights include a talk series dedicated to design and science, free yoga sessions courtesy of Happy Melon Mindful Yoga, and an exploration of the history of Bauhaus in Australia from the pros at Monash University and the University of Melbourne. You can also attend the launch of issue six of Assemble Papers, 'Future Local'; check out performances by the Australian Youth Orchestra, Australian National Academy of Music and Australian String Quartet; and head along to some amazing free music events as part of MMusic, including shows curated by Chapter Music, Bedroom Suck Records, Smooch Records, Conrad Standish, Sovereign Trax, Spike Fu*k and Miles Davis.
