Tiny Doors open worlds of imagination for Mandurah kids

Mandurah artists are hoping a trail of “tiny doors” they have spread throughout the City of Mandurah will open up on worlds of imagination for local children this summer.

The initiative, which has been sponsored by the City, has seen the model doorways installed in 10 locations from Mandurah Community Museum to Dolphin Quay bridge.

Mandurah artists Tennille O'Neill and Elli Moody came up with the idea of installing tiny doors across Mandurah ahead of the summer months.

Ms O'Neill said she hoped to encourage kids to get a map, step outside and re-discover their own City.

She also said the project would activate spaces across Mandurah.

The pair received a $2000 grant through the City of Mandurah's creative grant program to deliver the project.

Every tiny door was created by a different Mandurah artist and they have been installed across the whole City in hidden spots.

The team has also created a map with the locations of the doors, which kids can get online or at several spots across town (including the library and visitors’ centre).

They have also come up with a hashtag #TinyDoorsMH for people to tag their pics on social media.

Ms O'Neill was inspired to create the project by a similar initiative in the United States called Tiny Doors Atlanta.
