New Public Art Project – Tiny Doors
There’s a new public art northern beaches door company project sweeping the Northern Beaches: Tiny Doors. Inspired by literary portals, these miniature public art pieces will be placed throughout the suburbs. The project, which is funded by the NSW Government, will involve input from more than 100 young people, including those with additional learning needs, to create the works. Once completed, the doors will be installed in public spaces such as schools, libraries and parklands.
The project is a free community project aimed at engaging kids in a treasure hunt and promoting the love of books among young people. The project requires participation from 6 libraries in the Northern Beaches: Dee Why, Manly, Seaforth, Warringah Mall, Narrabeen, Mona Vale, Avalon, and Frenches Forrest. Participants must find and photograph each door, uploading their photo to the website.
