Landscapes of Injustice has passed the midway point and is transitioning from the Research phase to the Knowledge Mobilization phase. Project Manager, Michael Abe will be in Ontario to give an overview of the project, outlining the research that has been undertaken and informing the audience of the plans to disseminate the results of the primary research to the Nikkei community and general public. This will also include a demonstration of how the community can use the information to research their own history.
After a short refreshment break, Michael will be joined by Ilana Ross, an elementary school teacher in Toronto who has been testing our pilot lesson module in her Grade 5 class. She will share firsthand her experience with this interactive classroom activity and talk about some of the extraordinary results. We will also give an update by our curatorial post doc, Yasmin Railton, on the progress of the travelling museum exhibit that is currently being created from the Landscapes research by curators at the Royal BC Museum and the Nikkei National Museum. This museum exhibit will have a stop at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre, one of the founding partners of the Landscapes project.
Question and answer period to follow.
Free and open to the public.
