The Tashme Project at the MAI

The Tashme Project: The Living Archives is a deeply touching work that looks at the forced internment of thousands of Japanese Canadians during World War II. Creators Julie Tamiko Manning and Matt Miwa have collected and edited together testimonies from over 20 Nisei (second-generation Japanese Canadians), now between 70 and 80 years of age. Memories of the Nisei, who were children in the camps, emerge as the childhood games they used to invent, the ordeals they went through and the postwar misery they suffered are retold. The Tashme Project: The Living Archives is an attempt to establish a deep emotional and spiritual connection with the idea of ancestry, encouraging intergenerational dialogue.
