Sister City Pavement Poetry
To celebrate our region’s cultural diversity, we are showcasing the Central Coast’s Sister City relationship with Edogawa, Japan. An installation by local Japanese Shodo artist, Tomoko Oka will be featured for Flavours by the Sea, showing off her traditional style of Japanese calligraphy. The pavement poetry artworks consist of words and phrases that are significant to the shared experience of the pandemic across the world. These artworks remind us that even across the ocean in Japan, we are all experiencing similar feelings and that we are all in this together.
