Unpacking Our Histories A Community Conversation by Kayla Isomura 

歴史を紐解く コミュニティ・カンバセーション  

Sunday, 3:00pm-3:45pm, VJLS 

Unpack complex stories in this cross-generational, cross-cultural conversation inspired by the Nikkei National Museum’s current exhibit The Suitcase Project. This exhibit, featuring Kayla Isomura, asks yonsei and gosei (fourth and fifth generation) Japanese Canadians and Americans what they would pack if uprooted from their homes in a moment’s notice, an experience many of their ancestors endured but rarely spoke about. This community exchange asks participants how their family’s journey has led them to where they are today. 

日曜、午後3時~3時45分、バンクーバー日本語学 

日系文化センターで現在、展示されている「スーツケース・プロジェクト」にインスピレーションを得たこの企画は、世代を超えた異文化間の対話を通じ、複雑な物語を解きほぐすことを目的としてます。この展示では、カイラ・イソムラが、日系カナダ人とアメリカ人の4世と5世を相手に、「もし、かつて自分たちの先祖が体験したように今すぐ強制収容所に連れて行かれるとしたら、何を持っていくか」を問いかけます。コミュニティ交流を通じて、現在の自分たちがどのような過程を経てあるかを考える機会を来場者に与えます。
