Our community and cultural institutions, researchers, family members, artists, and many others have created priceless archives of Japanese American history. The effort to preserve, with tremendous contributions from many generations in our community, have given Yonsei, Gosei, and future generations important resources to learn and understand our community history, especially surrounding incarceration during World War II.

Once the stories are preserved and archives constructed, what comes next? What does it mean that youth (Yonsei and Gosei) of today in most families are the last generations to personally know survivors of concentration camps? How does the act of remembering collective history continue and/or change as it passes through generations?

This workshop will invite attendees to immerse themselves in acts of memory and memory crafts. “Memory crafting” are activities, exercises, and ways of constructing gatherings that help transform facts and knowledge of history into practices of memory. Presenter, Nikiko Masumoto, co-founder of Yonsei Memory Project (based in the Central Valley) will share insights from their three years of work.

This program is free in conjunction with the Transcendients Community Celebration: Challenging Borders event, but space is limited so RSVPs are strongly encouraged at the link below.
