Tiny Doors in the Northern Beaches
This summer, the Northern Beaches is hosting an exciting youth engagement project door installation, Tiny Doors. This project will see up to 100 young people, including those with special learning needs, work with professional artists to create a collection of miniature art pieces. These unique pieces will be installed in neighbourhoods across the Northern Beaches. These works of art are inspired by different types of doors found in literature and film, and are intended to inspire visitors to the area.
One of the companies based in the Northern Beaches, Select Window & Door Installations provides high quality windows and doors to the region. They are an Australian owned and operated business. Their products are energy efficient and sound proof. This company also offers sliding glass doors and glass replacement services. They have the expertise and resources to provide quality work for any home.
The project was inspired by the Tiny Door Project in Atlanta Georgia. These innovative doors are meant to engage kids in a treasure hunt and help foster a love of reading with the younger generation. The program is open to anyone who lives in or near the Northern Beaches. There are six libraries in the area: Dee Why, Manly, Seaforth, Warringah Mall, Mona Vale, Avalon, and Frenches Forrest. The participants need to find the doors and then take a photo of them.
