Record attendances announced as MPavilion 9 wraps up this week.

Today (6 April), MPavilion wraps up its ninth annual pop-up festival of ideas and talks, reporting that it has been the most successful to date since the event was established in 2014.

The pavilion was visited by 350,231 people (8 December 2022 – 6 April 2023), with over 350 events being presented by 611 local and international designers and artists. It is in line with a similar level of engagement for the much bigger festival – Sydney Festival – which also announced its figures this week.
