Finding Forgiveness

January 6, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Join us on January 6, 2023, at the Museum of Vancouver (MOV) for an illuminating discussion panel on World War II Japanese Canadian Internment, produced in collaboration with UBC Library, the Arts Club Theatre Company and the Nikkei National Museum and Cultural Centre. This event is supported by UBC Community Engagement through the UBC Partnership Recognition and Exploration Fund.

Inspired by Finding Forgiveness, a stage adaptation of Mark Sakomoto’s “Forgiveness,“ on now at the Arts Club Theatre, the event will include a special preview of the play followed by a moderated panel. The panel will feature: Forgiveness playwright Hiro Kanagawa; playwright and museum educator Carolyn Nakagawa; community elder and educator Vivian Rygnestad; and community elder, writer, curator, and activist Grace Eiko Thomson. A Q&A will follow where attendees may ask questions to the panelists and the actors.
