"To celebrate Shinju Matsuri’s Golden Jubilee in 2020, local artists Jacky Cheng, Jody Loaring, Michael Torres and Tomoko Yamada will join forces with international artist, Lisa Foo, to create a large-scale installation at the newly redeveloped Town Beach that explores the theme of ‘Home’. Just what that installation piece will resemble is still to be determined and is something the group will be giving much thought to during this year’s festival. The group will be inviting the community to participate in artistic workshops and help them brainstorm concepts for 2020."
