That headline is not the title of a new movie sequel. It’s an expression of celebration from everyone in Macao as, after months of cancelled events during the COVID-19 pandemic, festivals, art shows and other events have come back to the city as it eases into ‘normal life’ once again. We focus on four events that have taken place over the past few weeks: art collective TeamLab’s immersive space at The Venetian Macao, the annual Dragon Boat Festival on Nam Van Lake, the New Woman Festival that was held at co-working space Hub Macau and an extravaganza that celebrated the 15th Anniversary of the inscription of the historic centre of Macao on UNESCO’s World Heritage List at the Mandarin’s House and Largo do Lilau.
