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

Sunday, September 25, 10am-Noon

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.

Guests Linda Reid, James Burton, and Denise Cook, led by Helen Cain, will 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.
