Young Ambassador Spring Calendar


MCA SOCIAL presented by the MCA Young Ambassadors

Last year, MCA Social was a roaring success, with 250 guests partying hard, all in the name of art, raising $48,000 for the MCA’s renowned annual exhibition Primavera. Headlining was 1980s–inspired Melbourne-based synth-pop duo Client Liaison and DJ Annie Conley. The event also featured performance art, an orchestra, fantastic food and drinks and was topped off with a live auction conducted by Ray White’s James Price and the announcement of the winner of an art trip to New York.

‘I’ve been to some killer museum parties while I was living in New York and to me; I think this is Sydney’s equivalent.’

‘Party of the Year – the MCA, but not as you know it.’

This year promises to be bigger, bolder and more outrageous than ever!
