Broken Promises Opening Reception

Broken Promises Opening Reception

Grounded in research from ‘Landscapes of Injustice’ – a seven 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, ‘Broken Promises’ explores 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.
