On Saturday, August 27th, 2015, join the Powell Street Festival Society, Carnegie Community Centre, and the Japanese Canadian Young Leaders of Vancouver at Oppenheimer Park for the 11th Annual Vancouver Asahi Tribute Game!

The Vancouver Asahi were a Japanese Canadian baseball team that played in the Powell Street area, a historically Japanese Canadian community, from 1914 to 1941. Their home field was Oppenheimer Park.

We play baseball in recognition of the Vancouver Asahi for their contribution to the sport of baseball (the team was inducted into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame in 2003 and the BC Sports Hall of Fame in 2005), and for their place in and impact on the history of Canada, human and citizenship rights, and community-building.

The 11th Annual Vancouver Asahi Tribute Game is a free, inclusive, and family-friendly place to play ball, eat hot dogs, and come together for some summer fun!

GHOSTOWN, An installation by Steven Nunoda at Nikkei National Museum
June 14 – August 31, 2014

Ghostown recalls and memorializes a pivotal event in Steven Nunoda’s family history, the internment of 22,000 persons of Japanese descent during the Second World War. Combining 200 miniature tarpaper models with audio and video, the exhibit provides a focus for community remembrance. The work comments on immigrant experiences, broader issues of human rights, displaced populations and the effects of racism.

Kip Fulbeck: part asian, 100% hapa
September 13, 2014 – January 4, 2015

Through colour portraits of multiracial individuals of all ages and walks of life, award-winning filmmaker and artist Kip Fulbeck raises the question, “What are you?” Originally used as a derogatory label derived from the Hawaiian word for “half,” hapa is now a term of pride by many whose mixed-race heritage includes Asian ancestry. These powerful yet intimate expressions of identity offers a complex perspective on an increasing reality of contemporary North America. Exhibit Celebration – Saturday, September 27, 2014 – 4-7pm.
