Sharing Stories: Intergenerational Conversations is organized by Next Generation Nikkei (NGN) of Chicago JACL, and Japanese American National Musuem (JANM). It is part of the Contested Histories exhibit, which will be in Chicago for a week in May to bring artifacts made by Japanese Americans during the World War II incarceration.
The conversations will be an opportunity for Japanese Americans and others with a connection to the incarceration, resettlement, and redress to share stories across generations. Facilitators will help participants to take turns listening, sharing, and asking questions in small, intimate groups.
Pre-registration is strongly recommended but walk-ins are welcome. People will be assigned to small groups of 10-15 people and groups will be set up to have multiple generations present.
Participants are welcome to attend one day or attend both.
