With the theme Blue Sky Dreaming, the Aussie pavilion is taking shape within the World Expo’s Mobility District.
According to the website dedicated for the participation of the Australia at the World Expo, the Aussie pavilion will showcase the indigenous connection to land, sky, and sea.
In October 2019, Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (Dfat) said that finishing works were being made to the design of the pavilion, and site works were underway in preparation to begin construction on the facility.
Dfat has appointed TVG to operate the pavilion, a cultural program for which has been curated by Sydney-based Jacqui Bonner Marketing + Management, with the pavilion’s visitor journey during the global event’s 173-day period being planned by Melbourne-based Accolade.
