What to expect

is a deeply moving experience. Visitors may experience heightened emotions, and we would encourage people to share those feelings with friends, family and the broader community.

Arrival Information

To ensure the best possible experience when visiting the exhibition, sessions allow 45 minutes for your visit, with a limited number of people at any one time.

Due to capacity restrictions, please arrive within 10 minutes of your scheduled session time.

After experiencing the exhibition, guests are invited to visit the rest area in the bar, where coffee and cake are available for purchase; open Monday, Wednesday and Sunday: 10:00 – 17:00 and Thursday – Saturday, 10:00 – 15:00.

To assist in protecting the art installations no food or drinks, backpacks, tripods or commercial photography allowed in the exhibition.

Due to the immersive nature of the exhibition and the fragility of artworks, we kindly ask that children are supervised at all times by an accompanying adult or carer. We encourage parents of toddlers to use prams where appropriate.

We appreciate your cooperation.

I paid for a ticket but can’t find my confirmation/invoice, what do I do?

Confirmation emails will come from Humanitix. If you can’t find your confirmation email and fees have been debited from your bank account, please search ‘humanitix’ in your main inbox, promotions and spam / junk folders.

If you still can’t find your tickets, you may not have entered the correct email address. Please email time.rone@artgallery.wa.gov.au with proof of purchase (screenshot of bank statement) so that we can escalate the issue.

How do I sell my ticket?

We have partnered with Humanitix who provides a safe and easy resale marketplace for secondhand tickets. Please do not use any other platforms to resell your tickets, as Humanitix is the only approved partner that has been set up with the marketplace integration.

For more information, please visit Humanitix.

The session I want to attend is sold out. Is there any way I can still attend?

This is a very high-demand event so most sessions are likely sold out. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door, but we recommend booking ahead to avoid disappointment.

If I have a companion card how do I access this ticket?

If you are a companion card holder please contact time.rone@artgallery.wa.gov.au with your order and companion card details.


Tickets are non-refundable unless special circumstances apply such as:

  • In the event that the organiser is required to reschedule or change the date or close the venue, your ticket will be refunded.
  • In the event that you are unable to attend due to experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or have to isolate as per a DHHS directive.
  • In the event you can no longer attend and you wish to sell your ticket, please visit Humanitix for reselling.

How can I change my tickets to a different session?

Due to the nature of the building, we have limited capacity, therefore we are often unable to swap to another session.

If you wish to purchase a ticket last minute we have partnered with Humanitix so you can easily sell your original tickets and purchase tickets for a different session.

We recommend listing your tickets on Humanitix as soon as you know you can’t make it – Log in and contact their team here if you need any help. If additional support is required, you can contact time.rone@artgallery.wa.gov.au with details of your order and request.
