Broken Promises Museum Exhibit Launch

Grounded in research from Landscapes of Injustice – a 7 year multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional, community engaged project, this exhibit explores the dispossession of Japanese Canadians in the 1940s. It illuminates the loss of home and the struggle for justice of one racially marginalized community. The story unfolds by following seven narrators. Learn about life for Japanese Canadians in Canada before war, the administration of their lives during and after war ends, and how legacies of dispossession continue to this day.

The exhibit of Broken Promises was virtually launched at the Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre on Saturday, September 26, 2020:

From September 29 onwards, the exhibit will be open 10am – 5pm Tuesday – Saturday. 

COVID protocols are in place. The exhibit has a limited capacity of 8 people.
