MPavilion presents fast-paced 12-hour intellectual relay of ideas in celebration of final weekend

Melburnians are invited to MRelay, a 12-hour talkfest and conversation relay on Saturday 31 January in which some of the country's most insightful thinkers will engage in rapid exchanges of ideas. The free event will run from 11am until 11pm on the last Saturday of the four-month long presentation of the inaugural MPavilion, located in Melbourne's Queen Victoria Gardens. Visitors can either join the full day or drop in to see individual speakers in a series of talks and short interviews.

The 12-hour marathon event is based around four tenets. The first, Paviliions, considers pavilions as architectural interventions or places of sociocultural transformation, and features speakers such as designer of current MPavilion Sean Godsell. The second, Intimate Publics, explores connectivity in the public realm and will be hosted by actress, comedian and radio presenter Jane Kennedy. The third, Dreaming, contemplates the role of imagination in space habitation, and is led by soprano, actor and composer Deborah Cheetham.  Full details of the MRelay program are available here.
