The initial program for The Living Pavilion (May 1-17) has now been released – including over 60 thought-provoking and inspiring events featuring speakers, research activities, workshops and more.
Amongst 40,000 plants endemic to the Kulin Nation, The Living Pavilion’s temporary event space and living lab will bring together local designers, artists and scientists to explore relationships across Indigenous knowledge systems, ecological science, sustainable design and participatory arts. CAUL Hub is co-producing this event as a key research and knowledge brokering activity – and as such will be conducting research in a range of topics, such as urban greening, biodiversity place making and social science; and presenting our research through the CAUL Hub Talk series. For 17 days, The Living Pavilion will be open to all members of the public – to wander through and experience the dynamic landscape and enjoy the free programmed events and performances.
The Living Pavilion is located on the future site of the New Student Precinct at the University of Melbourne’s Parkville Campus and is a collaboration between the CAUL Hub, the University of Melbourne (Thrive Research Hub and The New Student Precinct), CLIMARTE ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE Festival, Ecodynamics Nursery and AILA Victoria.
