CRRF / FACL / OBA Event: Commemorating 30 Years of the Japanese Canadian Redress Agreement

Please join FACL and the Canadian Race Relations Foundation at an event at the Ontario Bar Association on June 27, 2018 to celebrate Canadian Multiculturalism Day and the 30th Anniversary of the Japanese Canadian Redress Agreement!

The event will include a screening of Swimming Upstream, a video produced by FACL founder, the Honourable Justice Maryka Omatsu, about the history of Japanese Canadian Internment in British Columbia. The event will also serve as an opportunity to announce the production of the East of the Rockies app, an interactive narrative augmented reality experience told from the perspective of Yuki, a 17-year old whose family is made to live in one of Canada’s Japanese Internment Camps. The app is currently under production by Jam3, a design and experience studio based in Toronto, with the help of acclaimed author and Order of Canada recipient Joy Kogawa.

The event is free and open to the public. Everyone is welcome to register for the event here.
