Museum exhibit community consultation

March 2, 2019, 10am-12pm

You are invited to a Nikkei National Museum Core Exhibit community consultation on Saturday March 2nd from 10am - noon.  That afternoon, we will be screening two Japanese American incarceration story documentaries and invite you to stay on for that, or if you are already coming in for the films, please consider joining us in the morning to give us your valuable feedback.

We are delighted to report that construction is on schedule and we plan to re-open, new and improved, this summer. To that end, the museum team has been hard at work to curate a Core Exhibit that tells our museum's story and showcases our permanent collection of archival material and artefacts.

With the expert assistance of exhibit designer Doug Munday who comes to us with 30 years' practice in exhibit planning and design, the museum team has developed a meta narrative of 'What It Means To Be Canadian from a Japanese Canadian Perspective'. We are seeking community feedback before exhibit components are finalized.

Please RSVP to jcnm@nikkeiplace.org so we can be sure to have enough seats and refreshments on hand.

PS the film screenings have a separate rsvp list that can be found here: http://centre.nikkeiplace.org/events/usa-film-screening/
