Post  JCCC on Mon Feb 13, 2012 11:15 pm

Dear All,

The Heritage Committee is proud to present the 70th Anniversary of the Japanese Canadian Dispersal Conference that will take place from March 31 to April 1, 2012.

This event provides the community with a capstone commemorative occasion that recognizes the personal and political significance of the internment and dispersal of the Japanese Canadians 70 years on.

Under the heading of “Keisho - Passing the legacy of the Japanese Canadian dispersal to future generations”, the conference opens with an overview of the Sedai Project and a special pre-screening of the documentary, “Hatsumi: One Grandmother's Journey Through the Japanese Canadian Internment” by director Chris Hope.

The afternoon portion includes the opportunity to take part in two interactive sessions that engage participants in exploring the history of the Japanese Canadian community and discussing important topics surrounding the community’s future.

We encourage all generations to attend – bring your parents, grandparents, children, and grandchildren to explore Japanese Canadian history through stories and storytelling, documentaries and reflection that will build a shared understanding of our community.

Register early as there is a maximum number of registration spots!

Please forward this evite and registration form to anyone you think would like to attend, and be sure to fill yours in while tickets are still hot!!

All the best,

Natalie Higashi
