Landscapes of Injustice is a partnership research project that focuses on the dispossession and forced sale of property owned by Japanese Canadians during the 1940s. One of our study sites is the Powell Street area.
The Powell Street Festival Society’s (PSFS) mission is to cultivate Japanese Canadian arts and culture to connect communities. Our main activity is producing the Powell Street Festival (PSF) in Vancouver’s historic Japanese Canadian neighbourhood, Paueru Gai, located on unceded Squamish, Musqueam, and Tsleil- Waututh First Nations territories. PSF is an annual celebration of Japanese Canadian arts and culture. In addition to PSF, we engage in co-presentations with arts organizations and produce an annual season of cultural and artistic programming. Find out more ›
