1000 Doors will open on August 25 

1000 Doors

Art installation 1000 Doors – Door Within A Door will now open its maze-like portals to the Ballarat public from Wednesday 25 August until Sunday 3 October. 

 The opening has been pushed back due to the latest COVID-19 lockdown, with the installation in Armstrong Street South between the Ballarat Town Hall and Myer to run between the new dates.  

1000 Doors – Door Within A Door was created by artists Christian Wagstaff and Keith Courtney, who were the masterminds behind the highly successful House of Mirrors, now located at MONA in Hobart. 

Christian and Keith said many of the countless doors used in this installation have been sourced in Ballarat. 

“A door is a beginning and an end, a promise and a warning. What waits on the other side is limited only by the imagination and decided only by an action. Step across the threshold of you,” they said. 

1000 Doors was sold out at the Melbourne International Arts Festival, the Brisbane Festival and the Adelaide Fringe Festival. 

Cost is $10 and free for children under five and adults over 75, with tickets on sale from 10am Thursday 29 July from Eventbrite. Head to visitballarat.com.au for more information and ticket links.  

For people who have already bought tickets, refunds can be provided or otherwise the tickets can be changed to a new date via Eventbrite. 

Please ensure you follow the current COVID-19 restrictions on the day you attend. 

This event will follow all COVID-19 safety requirements and strict hygiene and social distancing measures will be in place. 

The $100,000 funding for 1000 Doors has been received through Regional Development Victoria’s Regional Recovery Program.
