Mpavilion continues with its four-month program of talks, workshops, performances and installations in December.
The 2016 program at Melbourne’s Queen Victoria Gardens is presented free to the public until 18 February 2017 and features more than 400 public events with more than 300 collaborators, including 32 education and cultural organisations from Melbourne and around the world.
Here are some of our favourite events happening at Mpavilion in December.
