Heritage Vancouver Top10 Tour & Talk – Japantown, North Strathcona: Past, Present, and Future

Heritage Vancouver Society
Date of Event: 
Sunday, September 25, 2016 - 10:00am to 12:00pm

Join us for our second tour and talk in a new series on Heritage Vancouver’s Top10. The tour will explore the diversity of North Strathcona as “Vancouver’s first neighbourhood”, the pre-1942 vitality of Japantown, the post- internment community, and the current issues shaping the future of this historic area. Led by Helen Cain, this tour will unfold as a discussion between guest speakers Linda Reid, James Burton, and Denise Cook as they explore Strathcona North as a place of arrival and diversity with the focus on the people and places in pre-1942 Japantown, internment, loss of property and community, and perspectives on the current issues of cultural continuity and the critical importance of the retention and rejuvenation of historic sites within Japantown and the North Strathcona neighbourhood.
