Vancouver – Japanese Canadian Artist Directory at Powell Street Festival

August 5 @ 11:30 am - August 6 @ 7:00 pm

Join the NAJC at the Powell Street Festival for the soft launch of the JC Artist Directory, inspired by the 1994 Aiko Suzuki Japanese Canadians in the Arts.  The NAJC has been keen to to promote and preserve the legacy of the community, including the arts.  We have in since the beginning with the incubation of the idea. Our goal is to enshrine the legacy of Japanese Canadian artists whose creative works were made prior to the internet era, and have been lost to time.  We also want to provide a platform for practicing artists to meet, share, research, and promote their work.  This hub is managed by the Powell Street Festival, the keeper of the flame for this project. Along the way we have made new discoveries and refreshed older works.  We have a first phase of artists and will be navigating through the directory at the top of the hour, throughout the festival.  Join us to browse and talk about JC artists contribution in Canada, and learn how register and become part the directory.
