Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre

Jensen & Associates was asked to design the inaugural exhibit for the Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre in Burnaby, BC. The exhibit (which focused on internment and redress) was presented in quotes, historical photographs and artifacts. The exhibit toured 8 host museums across Canada.

DJA worked closely with the Director and Curator developing an exhibit approach for this exhibition. The intent was to keep the presentation simple and direct but with layers of information to satisfy both the casual observer and the academic.
